Knowledge Escalator SW

An initiative to encourage businesses and Higher Education institutes in Cornwall to work more closely together, this scheme aims to support business growth and stimulate new enterprise.

In Cornwall, Knowledge Escalator will bring together the combined knowledge and expertise of University College Falmouth, the University of Exeter and the University of Plymouth, building on existing collaboration facilitated through the Combined Universities of Cornwall.

The activities in this investment aim to make higher education institutions better able to respond to the needs of businesses, to encourage higher education staff to work with businesses and to provide businesses with up to date information on the strengths of higher and further education institutions in the region.

They also encourage joint working between higher education institutions and to foster within them a culture of enterprise amongst students and staff.
