Fusion Energy company Oxford Sigma, has moved back to the city centre where the firm was founded after three years at the Harwell Campus.

The firm, founded by Jonathan Musgrove and Dr Thomas Davis in 2019, has made The Oxford Trust’s Oxford Centre for Innovation its global head office while maintaining a satellite office at United Kingdom Atomic Energy Authority’s Culham Innovation Centre.

Since opening the new base, new roles have been created in fusion and development engineering and the company has teamed up with universities in sponsoring future doctoral research candidates in fusion.

Steve Burgess, chief executive officer for the trust, said: “We warmly welcome Oxford Sigma, a leader in key fusion materials, to our Oxford Centre for Innovation.

“We look forward to seeing the company grow as they continue their impressive strategy to accelerate the commercialisation of fusion to help tackle climate change and resolve energy security.

“They are now part of our 40-company strong thriving community of science and tech start-ups and spin-outs across our two centres which regularly collaborates for the benefit of discovery.”

Dr Davis, co-founder and chief technology officer for Oxford Sigma, said: “The Oxford Centre for Innovation is the perfect place to continue Oxford Sigma’s story and contribute to making Oxford not only a science and technology hub, but the place for innovation in fusion within the UK.

“The company has come full circle and we are excited to get to work in supporting our home city of Oxford in achieving its potential as the forefront of fusion technology both in the UK and globally.

“The centre is a thriving community of science and technology entrepreneurs making this location ideal for working with our partners in the fusion industry, world-leading research teams, and government towards achieving fusion as the ultimate clean energy source.”
