With the Oxford team securing a deal with construction kit company Engino, the University of Oxford licensing programme continues to grow.
The worldwide three-year deal will see Engino initially launch a range of STEM construction kits reviewed and approved by Oxford.
The Oxford University ranges will combine the construction expertise of Engino with Oxford’s reputation for academic excellence.
The resulting branded products will further develop the STEM series already produced by Engino and provide products with supporting educational materials within the categories of preschool STEM, science toys, robotics and bespoke educational products.
“We are confident that our partnership with Engino will generate a high quality product that matches both Oxford’s and Engino’s expectations and brand values,” commented Chris Evans, managing director of Oxford Limited. “The due diligence feedback from our Oxford review panel was really positive and we look forward to the first range launching next year.”
Costas Sisamos, the founder of Engino added, “The University of Oxford, in endorsing the Engino company and working with us to provide the best and most innovative construction system, has been a major achievement for us and is the spring board to making Engino synonymous with child learning across a broad age profile and brings to life our ethos of ‘Play to Invent.’
