Wales STEM Awards postponement
The Wales STEM Awards, which was due to take place on 1st May 2020, has been postponed until 12th November 2020 in consideration of the safety and wellbeing of everyone involved, which is our top priority. We want to thank everyone for the tremendous support we have received in the first year of these awards and we look forward to celebrating with everyone later in the year.
Welcome to Wales STEM Awards
Wales has a huge amount to celebrate when it comes to STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics). The inaugural Wales STEM Awards will throw the spotlight on Wales’ STEM stars – those leading the sector in Wales, those businesses creating an impact on the Welsh economy, those addressing the STEM diversity gap and skills shortage, those inspiring and raising aspirations of the next generation.
The inaugural Wales STEM Awards will bring the business community together for the first time to recognise those entrepreneurial and innovative ventures that are making a difference to the STEM sector.
What people are saying
“STEM is a key Welsh Government priority and we are committed to ensuring that all learners have an equal opportunity to reach the highest standards in science, technology and maths. I welcome the inaugural Wales STEM Awards and its celebration of the importance of STEM and Wales’ STEM stars – inspiring and raising aspirations of the next generation”
“STEM subjects are vital to innovation and productivity in Wales. STEM helps us to accelerate economic development and tackle some of the biggest challenges facing us today, including sustainability and renewal energy. Our STEM skills gap needs to be addressed for Wales to reach its full potential and these awards are one way of shining a light on excellence in STEM in Wales. Addressing the shortage of STEM skills in Wales is key to a healthier and vibrant future.”
“Our work with STEM businesses proves there is a lot to be celebrated here in Wales. The industries are moving at a fast pace and there is a great deal of talent here. If we want to put Wales on the map, we need to promote the STEM businesses, initiatives, careers and education on offer here and these awards are a great way of doing that. We’re delighted to be sponsoring the inaugural Wales STEM Awards. We’re looking forward to celebrating all those championing STEM in Wales.
