Oxford in Berlin is a German non-profit limited liability company (gGmbH) and a subsidiary company of the University of Oxford, established by the University Council in 2019. It is Oxford’s authorised representative for clinical trials on a pan-European basis. It has two other principal purposes. The first of these is to act as Oxford’s legal presence in Europe, in which role it aims to promote research without borders in Europe and beyond, upholding the values that underpin academic endeavour: freedom of speech, freedom of inquiry, freedom of collaboration, and freedom of movement. The second is to support the University’s research partnership with the four institutions within the Berlin University Alliance – Humboldt University, the Technical University, the Free University, and the Charité.
