Welsh Crucible is a programme of personal, professional and leadership development for highly promising research leaders of the future who are building their careers in Wales.
It aims to help participants to discover:
– how other early- to mid-career researchers in other disciplines are tackling the same issues as them;
– how they can transfer their knowledge to the public sphere to make an impact;
– the skills and attitudes that are likely to make their research more innovative;
– how thinking creatively can make a difference to their work and career.
Funded by the St David’s Day group of higher education institutionsand the Higher Education Funding Council for Wales, Welsh Crucible brings together thirty researchers to explore how they can work together to tackle the current research challenges facing Wales.
Welsh Crucible is for talented early- to mid- career researchers, with at least three years’ postdoctoral research experience, or equivalent, working in any discipline, including science, technology, engineering, medicine, arts, design, social and political science. Participants must work in Wales, either at a higher education institution, or in research and development in business, industry or the public sector.
