Oxfordshire Greentech is hosting a range of events geared towards helping our members hear from some of the best speakers in their sector, network with likeminded innovators and investors, and have a platform to showcase their own work among their peers. Our events give our members the opportunity to find out more about innovations and developments in their sector and form collaborative, forward-thinking partnerships across sectors – our events help our members to create an impact and make a difference.

Oxfordshire Greentech was launched on 6 February 2019 at a hugely successful event attended by over 250 delegates. Read more here.

Oxfordshire Greentech is proud to use Bioregional’s One Planet Living principles.

These principles target each aspect of sustainable living, ranging from Zero Carbon, to Local and Sustainable Food, to Health and Happiness. They map onto the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals and allow for a holistic approach that helps you work greener and live healthier and happier lives. We use them to help categorise the different topics our events are based on.

How can we work together, blending the capabilities of the Arc Universities, to reimagine the future of aviation?

6 January 2021 | 13:00 – 14:30 BST

Online webinar

How can we work together, blending the capabilities of the Arc Universities, to reimagine the future of aviation?

Ranking third in the world, behind only the USA and China, the UK is a big player in the aerospace industry.

Here in the Oxford – Cambridge Arc, there is world-class capability. Our pre-eminence is based on a tradition of deep collaboration; on the rapid application of technology into industrial application.

If we are to make the Government’s target of zero carbon aviation by 2050 a reality, this will take a highly joined-up approach. In this webinar, chaired by Professor Iain Gray CBE, Director of Aerospace at Cranfield University, we will be joined by colleagues from the universities, from airports, from Government and from industry, to look at the challenge in the round.
