The Oxford Science Park is owned and managed by Magdalen College, Oxford. Created in 1991, the Park upholds the College’s heritage and provides one of the most influential science & technology environments in the UK. There is half a million square feet of workspace accommodation across the Park, which is now home to nearly 2,500 people and over 80 businesses. These range from start-ups based in the Magdalen Centre innovation hub to major international companies and include Blue Earth Diagnostics, Circassia, IBM, OrganOx, Oxford Genetics, Oxford Nanopore Technologies, Oxford Technology Management, OxSonics, ProImmune and Sharp Laboratories.
In addition to being a key property investment, the Park is at the heart of Magdalen College’s strategy to support discovery, innovation and entrepreneurship.
