Insights Wales (Cipolwg Cymru)

Weekly webinar, discussion & research showcase:

launching in 2022

In 2022, we’ll host a new webinar series entitled ‘Insights Wales – Cipolwg Cymru’ which will provide a new platform to illuminate the research taking place throughout 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, the 30-40min talks will be solo or double-header webinars and will explore:

  • Details of research undertaken, results, questions arising/next steps
  • Career overview and lessons learnt (NRW/WG) or pathway into research (Academics/Postgrads)
  • Current opportunities and where to find them?
  • Q&A / discussion
