Fossil Fuel rearch and reserach aggrements

Andrew Taylor made this Freedom of Information request to University of Oxford

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was refused by University of Oxford.

Dear University of Oxford,

Please could i have the information provided by Research Services setting out the funding it has on its books from Fossil Fuel companies and funding for research on alternative fuels.

Could i also request the research agreements with the fossil fuel companies, including the title of the project and the relevant academic division. Some of these may involve transfer of funds, but others will not. Could it cover the last three financial years plus the year to date.

Yours faithfully,

Andrew Taylor

UAS Foi, University of Oxford

Dear Mr Taylor,

 

In the second paragraph of your email, you have asked for the ‘research
agreements with the fossil fuel companies’. Could you clarify whether you
wish us to provide you with a copy of each agreement or whether you wish
us simply to summarise each agreement by providing the names of the
parties to the agreement, its title, and the value of any funding provided
under it. I will defer action on this part of your request until I receive
your reply.

 

Yours sincerely
