How to get involved


The Centre hosts its annual forum, informal seminars and subject-focused events throughout the year aimed at bringing together participants in a number of different areas.

In Residence Scheme

By providing the opportunity to interact and build relationships, the In Residence scheme enables businesses and researchers to gain a better understanding of each other’s work, identify areas of collaboration and develop research proposals.

In Residence can form the first stage of in-depth research collaborations. Through detailed discussions with our academics and access to research facilities, data and expertise, the programme can help businesses understand and cultivate the research opportunities available to them.

Find out how National Lobster Hatchery, Sensory Trust and Spiezia Organics benefited from participating in the In Residence scheme.

Joint Research Proposals

There are opportunities to develop research proposals for the commissioning of collaborative research – where the Centre forms a partnership with one or more organisations – to gain the benefits of public funding. By collaborating, we can create new knowledge that will be a direct benefit to your business; aiding innovation, helping to improve competitiveness and productivity and attracting and retaining talented employees.

Learn more how research partnership brings multiple benefits for Exhale and GB Boardriders.

Networking, Stakeholder Groups

The Centre hosts a range of conversations from small focused discussions to large international conferences. These debates have highlighted Cornwall as a hub for health and wellbeing innovation and have helped to connect a broad mix of people and institutions from across the world.

“The networking opportunities provided by the Centre have broadened our business perspective and allowed us to develop knowledge that we’re hoping to translate into sales growth.”

Darren Terry, David Taylor Design

Bi-monthly the Centre hosts the eHealth & eWellbeing Stakeholder Group. An opportunity to engage in county-wide debate with partners from public, private, voluntary and not-for-profit organisations. The group shares current news and debates opportunities, issues and barriers applicable to the sector.
