The Oxford Martin School

enables researchers to address real-world issues through an interdisciplinary approach and aims to engage a global audience in considering humanity’s most pressing challenges.

The Oxford Martin School was founded in 2005 with the belief that this century, and specifically the next two decades, is a crucial turning point for humanity. The School  supports over 300 researchers, drawn from across Oxford and beyond, working to address the most pressing global challenges and opportunities of the 21st century. Researchers are grouped into interdisciplinary programmes and study subjects ranging from the future of the global food system to rethinking economics, and from the human rights of future generations to innovation in healthcare.

The School also organises a dynamic programme of events to inspire worldwide audiences with the ideas generated by its researchers. Visitors can access Videos, Photos, Podcasts and  Big Questions on the School’s website.
