OxLEP Business webinar: Resources for Innovation at Begbroke and the University of Oxford
Locating the right help and resources for innovating can be challenging. Oxfordshire is however home to an amazing range of organisations willing to collaborate on innovation and often with resources to offer qualifying SMEs.
This OxLEP Business briefing will explore some of the help available at the University of Oxford’s Begbroke Science Park, including the rapid prototyping equipment, the Oxford Materials Characterisation Service and the facilities available at the Agile Lab.
You may be looking for help with technical analysis, solutions to problems, materials choices, measurement challenges or general scientific or engineering advice.
Several locally-based SMEs have made use of these resources already and the Briefing will include case studies of the help provided.
The briefing will include an explanation of The Begbroke Innovation Voucher scheme. This helps qualifying SMEs, operating from the Cherwell and West Oxfordshire districts, to engage with expert academics from or more of the University’s divisions, or to access facilities or equipment at the University, with the aim that this could lead to future collaborations.
The current round is focusing on companies and/or University expertise broadly across the physical sciences and on developing new relationships. A voucher covers work up to the value of £5,000 including VAT.
The briefing will last one hour, with an optional additional half hour for those delegates wishing to ask more questions or explore their own ideas and projects.
