GW4 Crucible

What is GW4 Crucible?

GW4 Crucible is an early career researcher leadership development programme that brings together 30 competitively selected future research leaders to explore how you can enhance your career through interdisciplinary, cross-institutional research leadership and collaboration.

Over a series of three residential or online workshops, known as ‘labs’, you will explore how you can enhance your career by working with researchers in other disciplines, how your research can have greater impact, and how you can develop as a research leader while connecting with expert guest speakers, enhancing your professional networks and visibility.

GW4 Crucible provides an excellent opportunity for you to consider new approaches to your research and its impact, to enhance your leadership potential and career development, and to network with peers and experts from across GW4 and beyond.

The GW4 Crucible was an incredible experience, I learnt so much, developed skills in research dissemination, collaboration and leadership and also increased my own self-confidence.
