The British Chamber of Commerce in Japan (BCCJ) has announced that Oxford Instruments KK has won the prestigious Corporate Excellence category at the 2009 British Business Awards.
Oxford Instruments was selected from a number of impressive nominations as demonstrating corporate excellence because of its enduring commitment to investment in Japan and the significant role it plays in linking the academic and scientific research communities in both Japan and the UK.
The judges were particularly impressed with Oxford Instruments' commitment to promoting scientific exchange not only through strategic partnerships with Japanese companies, but also through the work of The Millennium Science Forum, which has been organised by Oxford Instruments Japan for over ten years. The Sir Martin Wood Prize at this event is awarded to young scientists who have performed outstanding and original research in a Japanese university or research institute in the field of condensed matter science.
Jonathan Flint, Chief Executive of Oxford Instruments said “I am delighted that the long term commitment of Oxford Instruments to supporting the scientific community in Japan has been recognised with this prestigious award”
