Welsh Crucible


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

Every year, 30 researchers 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, how their research can have greater impact, and how they can build international research careers in Wales. Participants continue to build collaborations with each other beyond the formal programme and the Welsh Crucible alumni network enables connections to be made between cohorts.
