Insights Wales / Cipolwg Cymru

Weekly webinar, discussion & research showcase:

Wednesdays from 13.30 to 14:30 GMT

Following the presentation of 20 talks in the 2022/23 academic year, we are delighted to be able to return and host a third webinar series of ‘Insights Wales – Cipolwg Cymru’ . The series will continue to provide a new platform to illuminate the research taking place throughout Wales and also the requirements for research and evidence to support environmental policy decisions by Welsh Government and Natural Resources Wales.

Hosting a range inspirational and entertaining speakers, the weekly webinars will cover a variety of diverse topics to reach a wide range of audiences.

We’ll align these talks with Welsh Government’s ‘Programme for Government – 2021-2026’, Natural Resources Wales’ SoNaRR and evidence needs reports and the sessions will be a way of linking research to key policy needs and provoking conversation and connections surrounding these areas.

Hosted by EP Wales Director Andy Schofield and/or EP Wales Partnership Officer Catherine Arnold, the 30-40min talks will be solo or double-header webinars and will explore:

  • Q&A / discussion
