2018-2023 Strategy

The Learned Society of Wales champions excellence across all academic fields and beyond. We use the knowledge of the Society’s experts to promote research, inspire learning, and provide independent policy advice.

By 2023, we want the Society to be:

  • More diverse – harnessing knowledge from a wider range of people
  • More effective – making stronger use of expertise and measuring our impact
  • Broader in scope – reaching new audiences with our activities

To achieve this, we will:

Champion research
Deliver high-quality events, celebrate excellence, and offer platforms for early-career researchers

Contribute expertise
Coordinate expert responses to consultations, support evidence-based policymaking, and harness our expertise to lead the conversation in key areas

Promote learning and debate
Communicate our Fellows’ achievements, support schools and colleges, and develop public discussion of important issues

Develop the Fellowship
Increase Fellows’ involvement in our work, elect a wider range of Fellows, and work with organisations that promote diversity
