Innovation Support

Supporting forward-thinking projects

Innovation can take many forms. It’s not exclusive to science, manufacturing and technology ecosystems, but also organisations in theatre, forestry, health and safety; they have all found support and funding through us, when they most needed it.

If your project is catalysing exciting innovation, then we want to help bring it to life!

Helping you connect the dots.

Our innovation support delivered through Innovation Support for Business (ISfB) is now closed. ISfB was a four-year project part funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) which ran until April 2023.

In the wake of this programme, we are still building on the existing vibrant innovation-led economy in Oxfordshire and engaging with the next generation of high-growth, successful businesses.

From working with businesses to see innovative services and products brought to market, to connecting businesses through peer support and networking groups; the specialist support, signposting and connections made through our innovation team can make a huge difference to your organisation.
