Partnership and Collaboration

 The Oxford Martin School regularly develops active collaborations and strategic partnerships with individuals and organisations to expand our intellectual reach and strengthen the potential for positive impact internationally.

We work with other academic institutions, businesses and international organizations for long-term aims or short, focused collaborations. Examples of some of our recent partnerships are with:

World Economic Forum – Annual Meetings and IdeasLab

The World Economic Forum (WEF) is an independent international organization committed to improving the state of the world by engaging leaders in partnerships to shape global, regional and industry agendas. Through consultative visits, participation at annual meetings and membership on special panels, our academics regularly contribute to the WEF’s intellectual programmes and strategic aims.

Virgin Unite

Virgin Unite brings together people to tackle tough social and environmental problems with an entrepreneurial approach. Their aim is to help revolutionise the way businesses and the social sector work together – driving business as a force for good. This is based on the belief that this is the only way we can address the scale and urgency of the challenges facing the world today. Virgin Unite also works on behalf of vulnerable young people across the globe.

Cushing Institute for 21st Century Leadership at Cushing Academy

Cushing Academy is a secondary school based outside Boston, MA, developing a new school curriculum to prepare students for global leadership. The collaboration involves a variety of events, activities and relationships that see our Oxford experts engaging with Cushing teachers and students to help them gain the knowledge needed to develop new learning products (books, online learning tools, multimedia resources, etc.). This is a non-profit making venture, which aims to make all such tools freely and widely available to everyone across the world.

Intelligence Squared (IQ2)

IQ2 is an international debating forum that takes information and analysis as its raw material, and translates this into discussion, conversation, and debate in live venues across London and around the world. We work with IQ2 to produce highly informative and intellectually engaging events for broad audiences on topics such as “The World in 2050” and “The Future of Medicine”.

Pi Capital

A private equity investment group, Pi Capital also offers its members an extensive programme of education, research and events. The collaboration between Pi Capital and the Oxford Martin School brings together some of the UK's most successful and influential business leaders with forward-thinking academics from the University of Oxford.

James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies (CNS)

CNS, based at the Monterey Institute of International Studies in California, aims to combat the spread of weapons of mass destruction (WMD) by training the next generation of nonproliferation specialists and disseminating timely information and analysis. The Center contributes its perspective on the dangers of weapons of mass destruction to the work of the School in exploring the potential consequences of emerging technologies that could shape the future of mankind. Our partnership is based on a two-way relationship of information sharing, policy development and intellectual collaboration
