Knowledge Spa signifies future direction for Cornwall

The opening of the Knowledge Spa on the 15th September marks a significant step in the new direction for Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly. The building of a knowledge base to develop the skills and education of the local population creates a forward looking research culture and attracts high paying technical and scientific companies to develop in the area.

The next phase will see the establishment, on land nearby of a medi-park, where businesses will benefit from access to the research and equipment at the spa, necessary to assist them in the development of ideas into economically viable products and services.

Having already invested in the first phase, Objective One is now looking for opportunities that will have an even greater economic impact through support for private sector businesses in the medi-park. As Carleen Kelemen, director of the Objective One partnership said: "Health related industries are at the forefront globally of economic growth at the moment and are seen as providing long-term well paid jobs for the future. The Knowledge Spa gives Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly the best possible link to the future."
