How will participants be selected?

Participants will be selected through a competitive process based on written applications. Anonymised applications will be assessed and scored by an interdisciplinary, cross-institutional selection panel. In selecting participants, the panel will be looking for excellent researchers who are innovative and creative thinkers, have an interest in interdisciplinary research, and who are committed to thinking about the impact of their work and to communicating their research beyond their current organisation. Successful applicants will already have a high level of achievement in their field, in addition to an ongoing commitment to the career development of both themselves and other researchers in Wales.

We hope to inform applicants of the outcome of their submission by mid-April 2019.

If you have any questions about the application process then please contact either the Welsh Crucible office or your local Welsh Crucible champion.
