Research & Innovation

AIR Launch Event - Research Student Community

Researchers at Falmouth apply ideas and methodologies derived from the creative industries to tackle real-world challenges in a wide range of sectors. Their creative and innovative approaches are enabling new knowledge, solutions, services and products that have a tangible impact in the world.
