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 andor 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.)

EXAMINATION SCHOOLS


Accommodation for Lectures

Trinity Term 1998

The Chairman of the Curators of the Schools would be grateful if
Professors, Readers, and University Lecturers who wish to lecture
at the Schools in Trinity Term 1998 could inform the Clerk of the
Schools at the end of the present term. It is necessary to know
whether a room suitable for an audience of more than one hundred
persons is required; only the three large writing-schools will
accommodate more than that number.

Leave for the use of rooms for lectures will expire at the
end
of the fourth week of Trinity Term.

Afternoon lectures should normally finish by 6 p.m.

Attention is drawn to the fact that overhead projection
equipment and 35-mm projectors are available. When these
facilities are required the Clerk of the Schools should be
notified in advance.
