Share this article

Treialon Cymru is an exciting initiative funded by Health and Care Research Wales to provide opportunities across the whole of Wales for people to engage with trials.

It is led by the Centre for Trials Research at Cardiff University and links across the Health and Care Research Wales funded infrastructure and beyond.

Three key elements of Treialon Cymru

  1. A research development programme aimed at increasing the number of large-scale studies led from Wales in areas of high priority for services
  2. An associate members programme to support people working in health and social care in Wales to be linked to a CTU to develop their understanding of what a CTU is and does.
  3. A stakeholder engagement programme to ensure that this work is meeting the needs of everyone in Wales, with an emphasis on diversity (including geographical)

Key activities over the first two years

  • Two submissions per annum for large scale trials in areas of high priority for Wales to NIHR and/or UKRI
  • Two cohorts per annum of associate members (starting at eight per cohort in year one)
  • Monthly virtual events on aspects of trials and four regional in person events per year

This work has been funded for two years from 1st April 2023 – 31st March 2025 in the first instance and through out all elements feedback will be gained and outcomes assessed in order to refine and develop the programme.

As part of the stakeholder engagement work, Treialon Cymru is launching a series of free one-hour webinars which will describe the programmes within Treialon Cymru, discuss innovations in trials methodology, and showcase some of the trials work being carried out across Wales.

The first set of webinars, including registration details, are listed below:
