Science Together: Oxford Researchers and Communities is a new programme that explores what challenges can be overcome or opportunities seized by local community groups when they are given access to the world class skills, knowledge and resources of our researchers. We work closely with community groups on projects which are important to them. Our pilot year (2021-22) saw 28 researchers from University of Oxford and Oxford Brookes University working on a diverse range of projects featuring carbon dioxide absorbing hedgerow pigment paint, an evaluation of the impacts of art sessions on the wellbeing of dementia sufferers, and the interplay between science, technology and hip-hop!
