Research

WISERD’s research programme encompasses a range of activities, from basic science to applied research projects.

WISERD’s research is primarily focused on the Welsh economy and society, but in an essentially comparative context, across the UK and internationally.  In substantive, academic terms, the programme focuses on the following key themes:

  • Education
  • Civil Society
  • Social Care, Health and Wellbeing
  • Inequalities

The programme is inter-disciplinary in nature, bringing together colleagues from across a range of disciplines including sociology; geography; business; economics; and law.

WISERD carries out multi-disciplinary research utilising quantitative and qualitative methods.  The Institute is also interested in developing analysis based on secondary data sources in general, and on individually-based, longitudinal analysis in particular.  In addition, WISERD is committed to further exploration of the application of mixed methods methodologies, combining quantitative and qualitative methods.

Supporting the development of research

WISERD is able to offer guidance and support to academic colleagues interested in developing research proposals for funders.  The hub team are able to assist with the development and costings of proposals and provide advice on practical matters such as training and capacity building, knowledge exchange and impact.

WISERD’s experienced academic team are also available to peer-review bids prior to submission, providing feedback and guidance, as well as assisting applicants in linking up with academic colleagues across Wales to develop research further.
