And value is what Innovation Forum Oxford (IFO) team strives to create and add to the innovation and entrepreneurship scene at Oxford. We are excited to announce that we are recruiting and you could be part of our IFO team! If you are unfamiliar with who we are and what we do, please read on.
By synergising with the existing Oxford players, IFO aims at inspiring, educating, and empowering academics and clinicians to engage with the process of bringing science-based ideas to life. IFO has major successes under its belt that positioned the team as a major player in the local innovation landscape: Innovation in the NHS and Innovation in Immunotherapy were game changing events that attracted more than 250 attendees each and saw world leaders deliver insightful talks and share their analyses and visions on global scale issues and opportunities in the respective fields. IFO also provided a lecture series in Health and Life Sciences Entrepreneurship that attracted more than 680 registrations over a period of 8 months covering 12 lectures and delivered by more than 30 experts from both business and health and life sciences background.
We are one of a global cluster of 13 branches strategically located around the world run by more than 150 skilled and talented members and a network of more than 10,000 entrepreneurially–minded people that seek to build bridges between academics, industry leaders, investors and policy makers. Together, we focus on the evolution and the future of today’s innovations, which range from the nascent stage to the cusp of commercial application. We deliver through three streams; local activities, the global accelerator IMAGINE IF! and the annual flagship event The Leaders’ Conference.
Through our robust engagement with the local innovation stakeholders and the support of our distinguished network, our agenda for the end of 2017 and 2018 is heaving and exciting!
If you are anywhere on the spectrum, from intrigued to already passionate about science innovation, this is your opportunity to join IFO and create value.
We are looking for motivated, pro-active academics (MBA, PhD, Postdoc) and clinicians with an interest in or passion for innovation and curiosity for exploring the interface between academia/healthcare and entrepreneurship.
