WISERD Engagement Strategy

The purpose of this document is to set out WISERD's approach (‘Strategy’) to engagement by detailing aims, principles, methods, and proposed actions – as well as to summarise information relevant to realising these goals (‘Guide’).

The aims and guiding principles of WISERD’s engagement activities can be summarised as:

  • Knowledge sharing and dialogue at all stages of the research process
  • Promoting understanding
  • Seeking effective solutions to social issues/ securing a better society
  • Upholding ethical practice and consistency with equality policies
  • Excellence in research
  • RCUK compliance
  • Funded research proposal delivery

The full English version of this guide is available here

Diben y ddogfen hon yw nodi’r ffordd y mae WISERD yn mynd ati i ymgysylltu drwy roi manylion am nodau, egwyddorion, dulliau a chamau gweithredu arfaethedig (y ‘Strategaeth’) – yn ogystal â chrynhoi gwybodaeth sy’n berthnasol er mwyn cyflawni’r nodau hyn (y ‘Canllaw’).

Gellir crynhoi nodau ac egwyddorion arweiniol gweithgareddau ymgysylltu WISERD fel a ganlyn:

  • Rhannu gwybodaeth a sgwrs ym mhob cam o’r broses ymchwil
  • Hyrwyddo dealltwriaeth
  • Ceisio canfod atebion effeithiol i faterion cymdeithasol/sicrhau gwell cymdeithas
  • Cynnal arfer moesol a chysondeb o ran polisïau cydraddoldeb
  • Rhagoriaeth mewn ymchwil
  • Cydymffurfio â Chynghorau Ymchwil y Deyrnas Gyfunol (RCUK)
  • Llunio cynigion am arian ymchwil

Mae fersiwn Cymraeg o'r canllaw hwn ar gael yma.
