be funded).

ISIS INNOVATION LIMITED

Ewert Place, Ewert House, 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:

EXAMINATION SCHOOLS


Accommodation for Lectures

Michaelmas Term 2000

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 Michaelmas Term 2000 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.

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.
