Oxford Martin School

Description

The Oxford Martin School at the University of Oxford is a world-leading centre of pioneering research, debate and policy for a sustainable and inclusive future.

The great challenges of our time - such as rapid globalisation, population growth, emerging pandemics, or climate change - share one feature.

All refuse to sit neatly within traditional academic disciplines. This common factor makes these challenges difficult to grapple with, whether as individuals, businesses, or governments, and therefore for societies as a whole.

The University of Oxford’s response is the Oxford Martin School. No other university, anywhere in the world, hosts a research organisation like the Oxford Martin School. Its community of more than 200 researchers, from Oxford and beyond, are working to address the most pressing global challenges and opportunities of the 21st century.

Each research programme brings together academics from more than one field to create the collaboration needed for studying and tackling complex global issues. With more than 20 programmes, subjects are as diverse as the future of the global food system, geo-engineering, human rights of future generations and innovation in healthcare.

The Oxford Martin School was founded in 2005. It was made possible through the vision and generosity of Dr James Martin (1933-2013), who established the school with the largest benefaction made to Oxford in its history.
