WISERD Partnerships

WISERD would like to establish partnerships with organisations (in the public, private and voluntary sectors) who have interests and expertise in social and economic research in Wales, policy analysis and evaluation, methodological innovation and development, and research capacity building. These partnerships will play an important role in supporting and developing the research and capacity building programmes of WISERD enabling it to;

  • widen its methodological base and expertise
  • enhance its capacity to respond to funding and research opportunities
  • extend links and relationships across the social science and policy communities
  • broaden the audience for social scientific research and analysis.

Partners will share a focus on high quality social and economic research in the Welsh context. They will also share a commitment to methodological development and enhancing research capacity. WISERD Partners:

  • Join an interdisciplinary network of social science researchers across Wales
  • Have access to the resources of the WISERD hubi
  • Can develop reciprocal secondment opportunities
  • Are able to use the WISERD name and brandii
  • Will be given advance notification of WISERD training and research capacity  building events

It is expected that partners will;

  • Respond positively to requests for contributions to training and capacity building events
  • Acknowledge WISERD, as appropriate, in communications,  publications and future research bids
  • Assist  the access of WISERD projects to field locations and data
  • Play a role in ensuring the future development and sustainability of WISERD
