A Thriving Oxfordshire:
Oxfordshire is now moving into one of its most-exciting periods of growth, with key work set to begin in developing a Local Industrial Strategy (one of just three government-backed trailblazers), the £215m Housing and Growth Deal and the emerging ‘Oxford-Cambridge Corridor’.
As well as having one of the strongest economies in UK, Oxfordshire is globally-competitive across many key sectors – such as automotive, life sciences, space technologies and electronics and sensors.
Key assets in the county include the internationally-renowned and government-backed enterprise zone, Science Vale UK. It boasts world-class research and development sites including; Harwell Campus, Culham Science Centre and Milton Park.
In addition, Oxfordshire is home to the Times Higher Education number one-ranked university in the world, Oxford University – which continues to lead the way in innovative research.
Meanwhile, the Oxfordshire Transformative Technologies Alliance’s science and innovation reportsays that the county can support the UK to become a ‘global leader’ through digital health, space-led data applications, autonomous vehicles and technologies underpinning quantum computing. If fully-utilised, the four technologies could be worth in the region of £180billion to the UK economy by 2030.
Oxford’s visitor economy is equally impressive. Around seven million people visit Oxford every year – including many international visitors – who generate almost £600million from a total turnover of £782 million every year.
