Oxford Satellite Data Economy (Oxford-SDE),a Digital and  Research Technology Organisation University (RTO-U) , started  in May 2001 by being registered at the UK Company House as a European Economic Interest Grouping (EEIG), with three key member partners: The Economic Geography Research Group of Oxford University, UK, Carl Bro SA (Belgium) and Dr. Stefano Bonfa, IBM consultant . During this period, SDE (EEIG)  has evolved  as OxSDE Research Technology Organisation University,located in Oxford and registered as EEIG.OxSDE is independent   from Oxford University   supporting   the public sector at at local,regional and national  level , as well as the private industry (Large Enterprises,SME and RTO spinoff) and Civil Society in design and implement digital innovative  strategy solutions using bigdata and machine learning.The Oxfordshire Model  for implementing the EU Smart Startups Specialisation Strategy (S3) was adapted by Oxford-SDE as an innovation  driven approach linked to  discover of local innovative data driven idea  leading to a strategical  economy growth .Today, the approach is  under dissemination through Europe and worldwide (CINA-INDIA)

Today, Oxford-SDE , SAMO innovation business plan platform funded by  ESA-Earth Observation Entrepreneurships Initiative (EOEI)- , UK Nationwide Computer Service LtD and USA Group Executive Strategy Manager ESM have  set up a  Bigdata Computer Center  start-up   (BD-COMPUTER CENTER-LAB). The BD-COMPUTER CENTER  is developing an online system of big-data,machine learning  integrated to smart specialisation strategy discovering, balanced scorecards,  alignment and  implementation. BDS3-LAB has developed through the European Space Agency  support fund aiming to develop a data economy STRATEGY ADVANCED MODEL ONLINE (SAMO)  business plan and platform including analytical tools enabling the creation of data satellite product , sharing,compliance ,regulatory framework.  . This infrastructure will offer competitive solution for industrial and research organisations, enabling government bodies to discover, adapt, align and coordinate the Smart   Strategies  at territorial and national level. Advanced machine learning techniques will help solve complex real-world problems by identifying the right specialisation strategy for the given task, implementing algorithmic solutions and assessing and improving performances, allowing to deploy solutions as a service.

The BD-COMPUTER CENTER, through the implementation of Machine Learning algorithms and advanced strategic modelling is focusing on the EUROPEAN SMART  SPECIALISATION STRATEGY  (S3) directive implementation by using satellite Earth Observation  transitioning  towards a  Satellite Digital Economy strategy and innovation . 

The Oxford-SDE  has headquarters in Oxford and London, and is associated to world expert groups, businesses and societies in big-data analytics, machine learning and strategy, including the UK Operational Society ResearchResearch Data Alliance Foundation in Europe and to the Executive Strategy Manager ESM group in USA. The adaptation to  innovation data driven  implementation of the strategical models is guided by Prof. Robert S. Kaplan (Harvard Business School) and Dr. David P. Norton principles, creators of the Balanced Scorecard methodology. Both, Pr. Kaplan and  Prof.  Norton are Board Directors at ESM group.
