Phillip Tait

Senior Knowledge Exchange Facilitator

I work for the Department of Physics to enable the outputs of our research to realise economic and societal impact through industrial collaboration and commercialisation.

My role supports all members of the Department from students to senior academics to engage in activities that utilise their knowledge, skills and technology to solve new challenges. I also help businesses access the broad range of capabilities in Oxford Physics and support the development of collaborations.

To fulfil this role I work with colleagues in Oxford University Innovation, MPLS Industrial Research Partnerships team and the university Knowledge Exchange and Impact Team.

See our webpages for examples of our impact, what we can offer and ways to work with us

I currently hold an STFC Innovation Partnership Scheme (IPS) Fellowship and I’m a member of Wolfson College. Before joining Oxford Physics, I managed national programmes of innovation at the UK Research Councils in both physical and life sciences, following my DPhil in oncology at Oxford.
