“OSCAR offers an exciting new frontier for the University of Oxford to develop and showcase its research excellence in physical and engineering sciences, with a dedicated Centre in a unique, globally-focused environment. Situating laboratories in the impressive Suzhou Industrial Park will enable Oxford academics to strengthen existing partnerships and form new links with the myriad academies and companies based in the area, benefitting their research programmes and advancing technologies closer to market. Through these partnerships, OSCAR can develop solutions that will help to address important challenges faced not only by the UK and China, but across the globe. By locating a significant body of research activity in Suzhou, OSCAR will also provide an important window for citizens of South East Asia to better understand the true nature of Oxford’s research mission."




Leah He

General Manager




“The operation team of OSCAR will focus on the development and delivery of administrative support for the academics from the University of Oxford and elsewhere, to set an example of quality, efficiency, reliability and integrity. We will support researchers from other overseas and Chinese research institutions through collaboration and partnership and open doors to local industrial researchers. It is our hope that you enjoy reading this first issue of our monthly newsletter which serves to increase the publicity and outreach of OSCAR’ s aims and activities.”
