As a devolved nation, there is a unique opportunity in Wales to experiment and test new ideas for social good.
Our partners in Wales include Cardiff University, Welsh Government, Wales Council for Voluntary Action and Arts Council for Wales.
How we work
We work in several ways across Wales to help solve big challenges.
Y Lab is the public services innovation lab for Wales, our partnership with Cardiff University. Established in 2015, it exists to do three things:
- Develop capacity for innovation
- Support new ideas
- Research how and why innovation happens
What we’ve done
We currently support public services organisations to test and implement new ideas with Innovate to Save.
We made Arloesiadur with the Welsh Government which maps innovation in Wales.
We supported five arts organisations in Wales to develop digital projects through the Digital R&D Fund for the Arts.
We worked with public services organisations by creating the Digital Innovators Network.
