Companies on the Science Park may benefit from the wealth of expertise within the Universities, and also for recruitment purposes they have access to science based graduates of the highest calibre.

Hi Tech Oxfordshire

"The county is now one of Europes leading centres of enterprise, innovation and knowledge. At the end of 2001, there were over 1,400 high-tech firms in Oxfordshire employing some 37,000 people. This represents around 12 per cent of all employees in the county. Between 1991 and 2000, Oxfordshire experienced a faster rate of growth in high-tech employment than any of the 45 other English Counties (or former counties). This growth in enterprise has been part of the county's transformation from an agricultural economy with a historic university and a car industry to one of the UK's leading innovation 'hot spots'."
