Head of Wales Innovation Network, Universities Wales

The university sector in Wales is establishing an exciting new initiative to deliver a step change in the depth and breadth of Wales’ collaborative research and innovation activity.


As recommended by Professor Graeme Reid’s ‘Strength in Diversity’ report, the Wales Innovation Network (WIN) will support Welsh universities in increasing research competitiveness by capitalising on our diverse strengths, providing facilitative capacity for universities, and strengthening relationships with UKRI and other funders. The Network will be made up of the 9 partner universities that constitute Universities Wales’ membership.


Working with the WIN Board and Universities Wales, this role will oversee the establishment and delivery of the Wales Innovation Network, including delivering WIN’s key objectives to support the sector in securing additional investment through collaborative bids, and leading the WIN team.


WIN will play a crucial role in Universities Wales’ mission to support a university education system which transforms lives through the work Welsh universities do with the people and places of Wales and the wider world.
