Don’t let Wales’ small size fool you. The country has big plans to boost science including initiatives to fund over 100 new fellowships and hire up to 30 top scientists, according to an article from Science Magazine. All this is in addition to infrastructure investments the country is making in the physical sciences.

According to the article, the Welsh Government’s Sêr Cymru initiative committed up to £50 million (US$66.2 million) in December 2015 “to bring prestigious research chairs to Welsh universities” and to support national research networks in the areas of life sciences and health; low carbon, energy and environment; and advanced engineering and materials.
