A report from Beauhurst, sponsored by the Royal Academy of Engineering, has identified that the 193 spinouts emerging from Oxford University since 2011, make it the leading university for spinout generation in the UK.

Oxford was also found to have the most active cluster for spinouts, with 90 such firms based in the local authority for Oxford alone. Many of these are have been successful in finding solutions to some of the biggest challenges facing the world today. Areas of innovation include sustainable transport, green energy, poverty alleviation, and medical diagnostics.

Baroness Nicola Blackwood, Chair of Oxford University Innovation, said, ‘This is an exceptional achievement for the University, OUI, and all those across the maturing Oxford cluster. But there is no room for complacency. We are determined to keep listening and striving to do University-based innovation better because that’s the only way we will play our full role in solving some of the most challenging problems we face today.”
