Unlocking the economic and social benefits of technological and cultural creativity
Plans are underway to establish the Smart Innovation Hub (SIH), a key component of Cornwall’s proposed European Centre for Smart Energy Research, Testing and Standards.
SIH is designed as a business acceleration facility with high connectivity. SIH’s role is to provide a catalyst for driving innovation and growth. Its international reach is complemented by SIH’s role in developing local energy markets and the knowledge economy.
SIH will integrate smart energy developments with emergent digital economy initiatives, as well as historical and contemporary cultural activities. As such SIH will be an internationally leading demonstrator of smart technology integration with the digital delivery of cultural content.
To meet these aims, a partnership has been agreed with the Academy of Innovation and Research (AIR) and The Academy of Music & Theatre Arts, both of Falmouth University.
