Policy Statements and Initiatives
WAG: A National Science Academy (NSA) is to be established in Wales to help deliver a stronger, more sustainable & resilient economy for the future. The Academy will promote the take up of science, technology, engineering & mathematics - STEM subjects - at all levels to ensure Wales had a continuous pipeline of people graduating from colleges & universities with the appropriate qualifications & skills.
The Academy will cover all Wales with 4 regional hubs and 1 central hub based at the Wales Institute of Mathematics and Computational Science in Swansea University that already manages the National Higher Education STEM programme in Wales. Regional hubs will be based at Techniquest Cardiff and Wrexham while the location of the remaining 2 hubs will be confirmed at a later date.
