Cluster Knowledge

OBN has carried cluster benchmarking since 2002 when it published the first of a series of OBN Cluster Reports for the local Oxfordshire biocluster.  Since then we have carried out many such exercises across the UK.

We continue to regularly monitor the growth of the Oxford/Thames Valley life sciences ecosystem with the Oxford AHSN and have carried out benchmarking and follow-up exercises for various client organisations.

Through OBN Consulting we have delivered detailed independent benchmark reports on the Kent and Welsh bioclusters, the latter for the Welsh Government, and for the Solent and Enterprise M3 LEP's in association with the Institute for Life Sciences at The University of Southampton.

OBN Connect™

OBN’s real-time introductions and matchmaking, based on intimate sector knowledge, avoid the plague of outdated commercial databases.

Our team constantly networks throughout the sector, meeting senior executives and learning about each company’s technical focus, business needs and aspirations.

Members are introduced to qualified contacts increasing the likelihood of a productive outcome, whether an asset, a focused investor or business angel, or new facilities.

For help making the right connections please contact John Harris, CEO at OBN.


Use OBN to conduct surveys of interest to your business or institution.

We have carried out surveys for governement bodies as part of consultancies, for the University of Oxford and for other clients.  We use the SmartSurvey tool which allows customised templates and also retains data on UK-based servers.

Please email Jonathan Rohll for more information.


OBN supports anonymous data collection for Biotech Personnel’s survey analysing base pay, bonuses, share option allocation and fringe benefits.  For more information on the survey click here.

OBN has strong connections with all of the science parks, facilities and other infrastructure components in the Oxford and Thames Valley, so if you are thinking of moving to the area please contact us if you need some assistance.

We can also help you make connections with facilities further away from our base in Milton Park through our nationwide Membership including BioCity Group, Manchester Science Partnerships, Birmingham BioHub, Invest Newcastle, Edinburgh BioQuarter and more.
