Phillip Tait

Innovation and Enterprise Manager

I work for the Department of Physics to enable the outputs of our research programmes to realise economic and societal impact through business 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, The Foundry, 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
If you are a member of the Department of Physics, please see our internal webpage

I held an STFC Innovation (IPS) Fellowship and have been appointed as an Innovation Champion by Oxford University Innovation. 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. I’m also a member of Wolfson College.
