“We would like to be able to identify cross-disciplinary research opportunities to attract development funding and business partnerships. It is also vitally important that graduate students and potential academic collaborators worldwide can easily access information regarding research activity in Oxford. They need to know what projects are being undertaken, what is the source of funding and what resources are available.”
