PROPOSALS FOR HONORARY DEGREES TO BE
CONFERRED AT THE ENCAENIA IN 2003, AND FOR DEGREES BY DIPLOMA

Council's Advisory Committee for Degrees by Diploma and Encaenia Honorary Degrees
gives
preliminary consideration both to proposals received from members of Congregation for the
conferment of degrees upon royal personages and heads of state on occasions other than
Encaenia, and to proposals for the conferment of Encaenia honorary degrees. The current
membership of the committee is: Professor P.A. Slack, Principal of Linacre College,
Pro-Vice-Chancellor (Academic Services and University Collections) (chairman); Dr S.R.
Parkinson, Linacre (Assessor 2002–3, ex officio); Mr B.R.
Ward-Perkins,
Trinity College (Assessor 2001–2, ex officio); Professor J. Griffin,
Balliol
College (Public Orator, ex officio); Sir Alan Budd, Provost of Queen's;
Dame
Fiona Caldicott, Principal of Somerville; Professor A. Cameron, Warden of Keble; Professor
D.J.H. Cockayne, Linacre College; Professor K. Davies, Hertford; Sir Marrack Goulding,
Warden of St Antony's College; Professor N.J. Hitchin, New College; Professor H. Lee,
New
College.

Members of Congregation who wish to make suggestions to the committee about honorary
degrees to be conferred at the Encaenia in 2003 or degrees by diploma are asked to do so
by
sending in proposals which provide information under the following headings:

name of nominee;

brief biographical details;

reason for nomination.

Proposals should be sent to Miss Noon, University Offices, Wellington Square, Oxford OX1
2JD, under strictly confidential cover, not later than Friday, 3 May
2002.

Members of Congregation wishing to suggest candidates are asked in particular to note
the following points:

(a) under Council's standing orders, no member of Council or of the
advisory
committee shall forward to that committee or propose directly to Council the name of any
person for any honorary degree unless he or she is prepared personally to recommend that
the
conferment of such a degree be seriously considered;

(b) while informal soundings within the University on any proposal
will often
be desirable, every effort should be made to ensure that publicity is not at any stage given
to
any proposal for the conferment of an honorary degree.

The Advisory Committee will report to Council just before the beginning of Michaelmas
Term, submitting a short-list of candidates for further consideration. Council will then decide
which proposals should be referred to its Committee on Honorary Degrees. The final list of
proposed honorands, drawn up by Council in the light of the latter committee's report, will
be submitted to Congregation for approval in accordance with the requirements of Tit. II,
Sectt. VI and VIII (Statutes, 2000, pp. 14–16).

Details of those on whom degrees by diploma and honorary degrees have been conferred in
the years from 1992 are set out in pp. 443–8 of the University
Calendar
,
2001. This year's honorands are as follows:

Fund

ISIS INNOVATION LIMITED

Ewert House, Ewert Place, Summertown, Oxford OX2 7BZ

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. If you wish to receive a copy,
please
contact Isis (details below).

Members of the University should contact the Managing Director if they wish to take
advantage of the services that Isis provides. (Telephone: (2)80830, fax: (2)80831, e-mail:
