About OBR

OBR’s mission is to connect academic innovators from across disciplines with each other and the industry resources necessary to move ideas forward.

Engaging our Community

We engage our community via our four arms:

  • Education: various seminars, workshops, panel discussions, and networking opportunities that provide unique industry perspective, and help foster on-campus conversations between established industry professionals and the student/postdocs who will be future industry leaders.
  • Consultancy: term-long internships that provide industry exposure to young innovators, allow for mixed teams from the top universities in the UK, and introduce industry players to talented students.
  • Communications: we have an extensive communication outreach via our Roundtable Review – whereby we publish and invite original commentary from our academic and professional network to increase dialogue at the intersection of science and business.
  • Entrepreneurship: We host the world’s largest biotech business plan competition, OneStart, in conjunction with SR One. We run parallel competitions in the USA and Europe – awarding $150k and £100k + 1yr of free labspace to the a top entrepreneurial team of under-35 year olds.

Our goal is to tear down the barriers that prevent communication between academia and industry.  By fostering these relationships, we aim to channel the enthusiasm and innovation of younger academics (students/postdocs/junior faculty) by pairing them with each other and experienced professionals.
