Innovation
starts here.

Three Centres across Cornwall aimed at inspiring dynamic people to grow and build innovative enterprises leading to business success.

The Cornwall Innovation Centres are more than just managed office and desk facilities. We have created vibrant communities of interaction that thrive on the networking and collaboration opportunities that abound within.

The management of all three Centres is delivered by the University of Plymouth on behalf of Cornwall Council. Cornwall Innovation was initially supported by the European Regional Development Fund Convergence Programme.

“Thank you for the attentive and comprehensive service and provision of support offered to us whilst using your premises for training events. The physical attributes of the centre are extremely conducive to a comfortable and effective learning environment. Second to none is the attention received from the Events Assistant and the rest of the team. Always on hand to help with any queries or mishaps, excellent welcome and ‘set up’ support, continuous attention to detail throughout the day and genuinely want to do as much as possible to make the day/experience as pleasant and positive as possible.”

“One of the main goals of the Innovation Centres is to provide high quality, flexibly managed workspace to start-up businesses with potential for growth. Since Headforwards’ inception the Pool Innovation Centre has been instrumental to our growth by delivering on this goal.  The office space has met all of our needs whether that be operational work space for our teams, or meeting space for prospective clients.  And, the ability to easily adjust the amount of space, in line with our needs, has helped us to keep on top of costs which might otherwise have impeded our growth.”

“We approached the Cornwall Innovation Centres’ team to use their events space as an environment for motion capture at very short notice. The staff were incredibly helpful and understood our needs for quick turnaround, and gave us access to a space immediately, which was instrumental to us hitting our deadline.”

“The team stepped in to help coordinate a conference I was holding for 70 delegates after I was let down by my original providers with only one week’s notice…. nothing was too much trouble to ensure that the conference ran smoothly – from room layout, catering, IT equipment, and front of house services; everything was taken care of.  The level of service was exceptional and we received very positive feedback from the delegates. Happy delegates = happy conference organiser. I’ll hopefully be booking with you again for future events.”
