Welsh Crucible

Welsh Crucible is an award-winning programme of personal, professional and leadership development for the future research leaders of Wales.

Each year, 30 exceptional researchers in Wales are selected to participate in a series of residential workshops or ‘skills labs’ where participants explore how:

  • they can benefit from working with researchers in other disciplines,
  • their research can have greater impact,
  • they can build international research careers in Wales.

Funded by a consortium of Welsh universities, in partnership with the Higher Education Funding Council for Wales, there is a high demand for places on Welsh Crucible from researchers who are beginning to demonstrate excellence in their respective fields.
