The first CDL site in Europe, CDL-Oxford maximises the probability of success for science and technology-based startups from across the globe. Housed at one of the leading universities in the world, CDL-Oxford also leverages its close proximity to London, a global epicenter of innovation.
The 9-month programme includes 4 full-day, on-site sessions focused on objective setting, and culminates in a 'Super Session' that brings together the most promising ventures from across all CDL sites.
CDL-Oxford currently offers two streams:
- Artificial Intelligence Stream - designed to support startups predicated on the application of machine learning and artificial intelligence.
- Health Stream - designed to help technical teams bring their medical and biological innovations to market by providing access to accomplished business mentors, health experts, scientists, and investors. This stream will accept founders pursuing commercial opportunities predicated on translational science and technology innovations in the fields of health, medical, and life sciences.
Applications for the above streams are now open till 10 August 2020.
CDL-Oxford is also hosting CDL Recovery, a temporary, global stream that will rapidly transform technological innovations into useful products and services that address public health and economic recovery challenges created by the global COVID-19 crisis. The programme is designed to anticipate and address some of the most pressing needs that will arise over the next 6-18 months. All types of innovative teams can apply – start-ups, corporations, informal collaborations, sole inventors, social impact ventures and not-for-profit initiatives.
