The projects in the Knowledge Economy investment cluster included those developing the Combined Universities and activities that supported the development of much stronger links between Higher Education and business.

Developing the Combined Universities in Cornwall was considered so important to the development of Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly it was the only project specifically outlined in the Single Programming Document contract. Prior to commencing the Objective One Programme in 2000, there was no such university opportunity in Cornwall.

University level provision in Cornwall and its links with business encourages graduates to start their own businesses, attracts new business and encourages innovation and knowledge transfer, thereby increasing the overall wealth of Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly.
