Please also include donations from any of the aforementioned companies.
Considering the broad nature of the information requested, I am happy for the college to provide as much information as the time limit allows, by starting with the first organisation and working downwards, until the appropriate limit is reached.
Please ensure that details show the company that provided the funding, the start and end date of the contract/project, the title of the project/research/donation and the total funding of each contract/project for the past five financial years.
Thanks for your FOIA enquiry.
Oxford colleges do not handle research grants or research consultancy -
they are processed through the University academic departments. So New
College has received no such grants or entered into any such consultancy.
Nor has it received any donations from any of the companies/entities you
