Innovation centres in spotlight


Cornwall’s three innovation centres have been highlighted by the European Commission for their work in helping small businesses to grow.

The Commission has chosen the innovation centres as its project of the week, featuring them on its website and citing the success of the individual centres and the way in which they feed into the wider efforts to promote economic growth in Cornwall.

The Pool Innovation Centre was the first to open in July 2010, and was followed by the Tremough Innovation Centre in January.

The third, the Health and Wellbeing Innovation Centre, is set to open early 2013.
