Welcome to

Cornwall Science Community

(formerly known as BSA Cornwall)

Welcome to the western-most branch of the British Science Association
Cornwall Science Community aims to promote science as a part of the life, culture and society of the people of Cornwall.

Cornwall Science Community is a group established in 2019 with the aims of

  • promoting science as a part of culture and society to the people of Cornwall
  • establishing collaborative relationships with other similar groups and institutions

Our ambition is to help increase the number of people who are actively engaged and involved in science in Cornwall – whether they think of themselves as scientists or not.

Formerly we were set up and known as a local branch of the British Science Association, and the BSA’s below video actually describes our aims quite well. We hope to add to this by focusing on establishing collaborations with other like-minded organisations, across thew Duchy – and beyond.


Cornwall was once – more than once – at the forefront of industrial and scientific exploration.  But ‘now the fish and tin are gone’ (as the songs say), it is the knowledge economy that will take us forward.
