Bid to boost Welsh life sciences sector
A PROJECT has been launched to make the most of the life sciences when it comes to the Welsh economy.
David Ford, Professor of health informatics at Swansea University, said Wales had real potential to become a global player in the life sciences and healthcare fields if the sector secures the right levels of investment.
His statement comes as the Life Science Wales project is launched, aiming to connect the sector across Wales.
It is backed by £228,973 from the Welsh Government's European funded Academic Expertise for Business (A4B) programme and is a collaboration between academia, business and the NHS in Wales, which will consider how life sciences can make an even greater contribution to the economy.
Computeraid can offer employed people a free Microsoft Office training course.
Build your skills, cut costs and improve productivity.
Next course: 7th June in Swansea Vale.
Attendees must be employed by the private sector and based in a qualifying county (Swansea / Neath Port Talbot / Carmarthenshire).
This is a Regional Essential Skills project part funded by ESF.
