Celebrating 11 years of Innovation and Achievement in the Life Sciences Industry

Please see our 2018 Winners.

2019 marks the 11th Anniversary of the OBN Awards, that’s 10 years of celebration and recognition for the leading lights of the Life Sciences industry.


The OBN Awards have grown steadily each year, both in the number of entries received and also in the level of support we get from the industry, so much so that we are on the move again. We are delighted to announce that the 2019 awards will be taking place in the impressive and inspiring space of the Examination Schools in Oxford. The evening will be hosted in both the South and North Writing Schools, which allows us to increase capacity on the night to 300 guests.


The Examination Schools were built between 1876 and 1882 and designed by Sir Thomas Jackson; the historic Grade II listed building was created to house the University of Oxford’s examinations and are still used today.

The event is being held at the Oxford Examination Schools and will start with a drinks reception in from 18:30, followed by dinner at 19:00. Formal proceedings finish at 22.30, with last orders at 23.30.
