ISIS INNOVATION LIMITED

2 South Parks Road, Oxford OX1 3UB

Isis Innovation, a wholly-owned company of the
University, was established in 1988. The company has been
formed to exploit know-how arising out of research funded
by the UK Government through the Research Councils and
funded by other bodies where the rights are not tied. The
function of the company is to ensure that the results of
research bring rewards to Oxford, and to the inventors,
who are given a financial incentive for exploitation.

Isis seeks licensees willing to pay lump
sums and/or royalties for the use of know-how arising out
of research. Isis also exploits the intellectual property
of the University by setting up individual companies
using venture capital or development capital funds.

Isis' services are also available to individuals
who wish to exploit the results of research supported by
non-Research Council sources, when there are no prior
conditions on the handling of the intellectual property
rights. Isis Innovation has at its disposal a small
pre-seedcorn fund for paying the costs of protecting
intellectual property rights and for taking work to a
stage where its potential can be assessed.

Isis finds industrial partners to ensure
that new ideas can be developed for market requirements.
The company has established the Oxford Innovation Society
for major industrial companies, so that they can have a
window on Oxford technology and an opportunity to license
and invest where appropriate.

A brochure explaining Isis' activities is
available. Please contact the above address, or the
telephone and fax numbers given below.

Members of the University should contact the
Managing Director if they wish to take advantage of the
services that Isis provides. (Telephone: (2)72411; fax:
(2)72412.)

SIR JOHN HICKS FUND

The Committee for the Sir John Hicks Fund invites applications from members of the
University for grants towards the costs of research in economic history.
Applications will be considered from undergraduates, graduate students, and members
of academic staff, and may related to research into the economic history of any
period or country.

Applicants should (a) provide sufficient information about the general nature of
their research to establish that it falls within the field of economic history; and
(b) specify the precise nature and cost of the expenditure for which a grant is
requested. They should also give the name of one referee who might be consulted by
the committee.

It is intended by the committee that grants should normally be made for sums of up
to œ250, though this may on occasion be exceeded. Retrospective grants will be made
only in exceptional circumstances.

The committee will consider applications twice in each year. The closing date for
the first round is Monday of the third week of Hilary Term, and for the second
round Monday of the third week of Trinity Term. Applications should be sent to Mrs
E.A. Macallister, Secretary of the Committee for the Sir John Hicks Fund,
