Event description

Description

Oxfordshire is now moving into a period of significant 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.

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.

Following the success of our two previous Q&A events for the Oxfordshire business community - a third, quarterly Q&A event will be held at the Kassam Stadium on Tuesday 10 July, centred around OxLEP's 'Enterprise' priority.

Business leaders from across the county will discuss why innovation-led growth is key to success in Oxfordshire and how 'UK PLC' can utilise the county's key innovative assets.

Oxfordshire is home to the internationally-renowned and government-backed enterprise zone, Science Vale UK, as well as boasting world-class research and development sites including; Harwell Campus, Culham Science Centre and Milton Park.

The focus of the Q&A event will be around the question, 'How can Oxfordshire businesses make an impact – nationally and internationally – by embracing innovation?' and will be debated by the following panel:

  • Nigel Tipple: Chief Executive, OxLEP
  • Ian Nash: Area Director, Business Banking, HSBC
  • Emma Jones MBE: Founder, Enterprise Nation
  • Dr Matt Perkins: CEO, Oxford University Innovation

Further panel members to be announced soon.

Event details are as follows:

  • 8am: Registration and breakfast refreshments
  • 8.30am: Q&A event begins
  • 10am: Q&A event closes

This is a free event, though places are limited.

We look forward to welcoming you.
