The Lab

In Spring 2024 the Oxford Sustainable Finance Lab began operations in the very heart of Oxford

The Lab is a physical space where Oxford researchers can co-locate with practitioners visiting from financial institutions, supervisory authorities, central banks, government departments, and civil society organisations. Visitors collaborate with Oxford researchers as part of sprints, joint projects, and sandboxes, or simply use time in proximity to world-leading researchers to spark ideas off each other and learn from one another. 

A Community of Practice

The Lab hosts visitors from a range of organisations, with visitors staying for pre-agreed periods (ranging from a few hours a week over the long term to single or multiple intensive short-term visits to longer term residencies) with this being determined by and evolving based on the nature of collaborations.

A space to innovate

The Lab is a space to innovate in and around the emerging field of sustainable finance and investment. We foster interactions between different parts of the financial system and break down barriers between them.

Institutional partners can benefit from opportunities for their staff to collaborate with members of the Lab, including world-leading Oxford researchers. Our community of practice will ensure partners can access and shape emerging thinking on sustainable finance and investment.
