Dental training

The key objectives of this project have been:

  • To create a research and educational community that is closely linked with local business.
  • To increase training opportunities for the people of Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly and attract students and qualified professionals to the area.
  • To establish a successful Dental School campus in Cornwall.
  • To establish an interactive science, medicine and business based community.

As part of a wider investment, the ERDF Convergence Programme also invested in the construction of an extension at the Knowledge Spa, Truro, to house the Peninsula Dental School's Cornwall headquarters.

The University of Plymouth was the applicant and the investment was delivered by Peninsula College of Medicine and Dentistry (University of Exeter and University of Plymouth), and the Royal Cornwall Hospitals Trust.
