Research excellence in Cornwall

Our investment in Cornwall involves working with Falmouth University to deliver the Cornwall 2020 Campus Plan.

Through match funding with Falmouth University, we are investing a total of £11.7m into creating world-class research facilities on our Cornwall campuses, alongside plans to improve our Penryn campus infrastructure, teaching facilities and social spaces.

This investment includes expanding facilities for the College of Life and Environmental Sciences, the College of Engineering, Mathematics and Physical Sciences, and the Business School with the SERFS extension, alongside the £1.77m REEF Renewable Energy Engineering Facility (REEF) which is now open and provides specialist teaching facilities for the design, build, test and display of renewable energy engineering projects.
