A Prosperous Wales – Early Career Research Network Colloquium, 6 July 2023

A prosperous Wales is the theme of a Learned Society of Wales face-to-face colloquium for early career researchers hosted by Swansea University this summer. 

We’re inviting proposals for flash talks and research posters on the theme from ECRs working in Wales’ universities. 

The event will bring together members of the LSW’s ECR Network, together with colleagues from the academic, policy, public, private, and third sectors. There will be the chance to network, share research and develop the skills needed for a successful research career in research. 

Proposals on the following areas are especially welcome: 

  • The change to a low carbon society;  
  • Creating skills for the future; 
  • Encouraging a culture of decent work;  
  • The health of the people of Wales;  
  • A vibrant culture and thriving Welsh language; 
  • Attractive, viable, safe and well-connected communities;  
  • Greater equality to enable people to fulfil their potential.  
  • The ecological resilience of the natural environment, including acting on climate change

Cathy Stroemer, Programme Manager for Researcher Development at the LSW, said: 

“Our ECR network has made a name for itself by promoting the work of Wales’ early career researchers, creating a supportive environment for them and delivering training that helps academics at the start of their careers. 

“This colloquium builds on the work of the past two years. It will be a vibrant, face-to-face event which will be thought-provoking, productive and certain to create links between researchers from different disciplines and institutions. 

“The LSW is working hard to show how research from Wales can have an immediate impact on the many challenges we face both here and globally. 

“We hope many ECRs will be inspired to submit their ideas for the colloquium, where they can present their research to a wide and diverse audience.”
