The Minister for Science and Universities Jo Johnson today visited the Oxford Science Park which is owned and run by Magdalen College.  He took part in an official ground-breaking ceremony and revealed the building’s name to be The Schrödinger Building, after the great Nobel Prize winning physicist Erwin Schrödinger who was a Fellow of Magdalen from 1933-38. The £13 million state-of-the-art office and laboratory building is capable of accommodating 500 people and will significantly contribute to Oxford University and Magdalen’s reputation as leading centres for research and innovation.

Rory Maw, Bursar of Magdalen, said; “We were honoured that Jo Johnson visited us today to be part of this literally ground breaking day. We continue to develop the Park as a long-term strategic asset which supports growth, discovery, innovation, and entrepreneurship.”
