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.

“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.”

“We have a large annual event where a team of around 20 people come together from various parts of the world.  This January we used the largest meeting room in the building along with various other rooms for breakout sessions. We wanted to start our day early and this was accommodated.  The room was set up as requested.  There was a good selection of lunches/refreshments to choose from.   Parking was dealt with efficiently.  And most importantly the technology worked!”

“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.”

“As a micro-SME but working with blue chip clients, Pool Innovation Centre gives us the corporate image that we need, especially when entertaining visitors, from a professional staffed Reception to meeting and seminar rooms to suit all of our needs.  PIC has given us the flexibility to grow and expand and move to a larger office down the corridor without the upheaval of moving to another site.  The 24h access, on-site parking and comfortable communal spaces, including kitchens give great added value.  But above all it’s the people – the centre staff and other tenants add up to a community that’s greater than the sum of the parts.”

“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.”
