The University of Oxford launched its first Public Engagement with Research Strategic Plan to an audience of over 100 staff at a reception at the Pitt Rivers Museum on 12 December 2016.

Oxford’s vision is to embed high-quality and innovative public engagement as an integral part of its research culture and practice, enhancing its position as a world-leading research institution.

The consultation process for the development of the Plan gathered views and input from across the University and the Plan has been approved by the University’s Research Committee.

The purpose of the University’s Public Engagement with Research Strategic Plan is two-fold:

  • to frame an ambitious vision for Public Engagement with Research at Oxford;
  • to identify the key steps towards it that will be undertaken in the next three years and against which to measure progress.

New research by the Consortium for Organ Preservation in Europe (COPE) has found that a new method to transport donor kidneys, which uses a combination of cold perfusion with oxygen, can significantly improve transplant results, with less graft failure, better function and lower rejection of the kidney when compared to cold perfusion alone. For patients who need a kidney transplant this is a big step forward. The study, carried out in Belgium, The Netherlands and the UK, was published today in The Lancet.
