Welsh Crucible - 2019 call for applications now open

Closing date: 15 February 2019

Welsh crucible brings together thirty researchers each year in order to explore how they can work together to tackle the current research challenges facing 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.

Welsh Crucible is for talented early-to mid-career researchers with a minimum of 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 one of the partner HE institutions or in research & development in business, industry or the public/third sector.
