What are sprints?

The Agile Initiative responds to specific environmental policy questions with fast-paced solution-focused research that delivers new research precisely when it is needed. World-leading academic teams from across Oxford work closely with policy, industry, NGO and local collaborators to feed evidence-based responses to a single, key question into the policy cycle in real-time. These are ‘Sprints’.

Sprints are a faster, more collaborative way of conducting research that break down the barriers between stakeholders and bring varied scientific disciplines together to deliver the best possible policy solutions to critical environmental challenges.
