Tell your business’ Covid-19 story for The Inclusivity Project research

2021 is the year The Inclusivity Project’s research gets really interesting – and we’d like you to be a part of it, by telling your story.

You can do this by taking part in a brief online survey. Simple as that.

This will help us to build a picture of what businesses and organisations like yours are doing to survive in difficult times.

The survey has been designed by the University of Exeter as part of The Inclusivity Project, a three-year EU-funded study that seeks to develop our understanding of the opportunities and challenges faced by SMEs in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly as resilient, inclusive workplaces.

The survey should take no longer than 10 minutes, and it’s completely anonymous.


This is for you if:

  • you own or manage an SME (including sole traders)
  • in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly

Your responses can help to inform local and national understanding of SME experiences of the pandemic, and SME priorities in the future.

Please read this research information sheet (which you can save for future reference). If you have any further questions, you’re invited to contact the lead researchers, Dr Emmylou Rahtz and Dr Lucy Szaboova, at any time via and

Taking part in the survey is completely voluntary and you are free to stop at any time. In case of an interruption, your data will be deleted.

Once you have clicked ‘Finish’, your responses will be included in the study and the fully anonymised data may be published in reports, academic publications and online media platforms and may be used in public engagement activities.
