WISERD Training & Capacity Building Programme 2008-11

The WISERD training and research capacity building programme was established in September 2009 with two objectives. The first was the implementation of a training programme, aimed primarily at professional researchers within the social sciences, and encompassing colleagues from other disciplinary areas and sectors. The second was to identify, encourage and facilitate networking between social science researchers and other relevant stakeholders, within Wales, across the UK and internationally. Training and research capacity building activities are used by WISERD:

  • To support the development of inter-institutional research teams through methodological development
  • To improve research capacity among public organisations and other stakeholders
  • To address identified deficits in quantitative skills in Wales and beyond

During the period 2009-2012, as part of its training and capacity building programme, WISERD organised a series of training events; seminars and conferences. For information on previous WISERD events please click here

In 2012, WISERD commissioned an evaluation of its training and capacity building programme. To download a copy of the evaluation please click here.
