Working with Cornish business

The Centre works with Cornish businesses to help develop environment and health research that will have commercial applications and lead to business growth.

Being part of the research and innovation process can create a variety of business opportunities, allowing companies to reach diverse markets and playing a pivotal role in up-skilling work forces.
