MORE ABOUT THE OXFORD CENTRE FOR INNOVATION

Managed by

Oxford Innovation Logo

 

We're part of Oxford Innovation Space, a network of innovation centres throughout the UK and Ireland supporting businesses of all sizes with flexible workspace, expert business support and partnerships with local enterprise ecosystems.

Partnered with

The Wood Centre for Innovation (WCFI) is partnered and fully integrated with the Oxford Centre for Innovation (OCFI), already a well-established hub in the heart of Oxford. So this enables our businesses to tap into a larger network of science and technology companies, and allows the sharing of expertise and resources. Our resources include access to meeting rooms in a city centre location.

MORE ABOUT OCFI

Owned by

The Wood Centre for Innovation (WCFI) and the Oxford Centre for Innovation (OCFI) are both owned by The Oxford Trust; an independent charitable trust founded in 1985 by entrepreneurs Sir Martin and Lady Audrey Wood. The Trust’s mission is to encourage the pursuit of science and enterprise.

Both innovation centres encourage enterprise by providing cost-effective, flexible office space, meeting and conference facilities and business support for tech entrepreneurs and start-ups. They have enabled hundreds of innovative companies to begin, develop and grow, including; Mirada Medical, Perspectum Diagnostics, Natural Motion and Oxford Computer Consultants.

The Trust’s sustainable business model means that income from WCFI and OCFI is reinvested in the Science Oxford Centre at Stansfeld Park and their Science Oxford education and engagement programmes. The strength of the Trust’s business model is that it supports both ends of the innovation ecosystem, from inspiring young children about the wonders of science, to helping start-ups develop and grow.
