Record Results in Isis 2011 Annual Report
Isis continues to deliver a positive return on investment to the University each year; receiving £2.5m pa from the University and this year returning £4.8m (up from £4.5m in 2010) to the University and its researchers from royalties, consulting and profit, by means of gift aid payments. In addition to this Isis delivers a wide range of further benefits to the University in both financial and non-financial terms. We are grateful to the University for its continued support.
Isis revenues increased by 12.5% to £8.4m, with growth across the three business divisions. This is an impressive business performance given the recent recession and continuing economic malaise. The three business divisions are each involved in translating research outputs and expertise from Oxford’s outstanding research base to create sustainable economic growth together with knowledge transfer for the benefit of society. This is achieved through licence arrangements, consulting and spin-out activity.
