EESW Wins STEM Team of the Year Award 2023
The Wales STEM awards 2023 took place at the Mercure Holland House Hotel, Cardiff on 13th October.
The event, which is jointly organised by Grapevine Event Management and jamjar communications agency, celebrates the success of the organisations and individuals making a significant contribution to the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Maths) agenda in Wales and those who are making an impact on the Welsh economy and addressing the STEM diversity gap and skills shortages. Finalists were invited to the black-tie dinner where the winners of 14 different awards were announced by broadcaster Sian Lloyd.
Co-Founder of Wales STEM Awards, Liz Brookes, Director of Grapevine Event Management said:
“It has once again been incredible shining a spotlight on the STEM sector in Wales. Our winners are pushing the boundaries of STEM innovation and helping address the diversity gap and skills shortage that exists. These organisations and individuals are an inspiration to our country and our next generation. I would like to offer a huge congratulations to all of the winners and to all of those shortlisted. Your work is incredibly important, and we thank you for your contributions to STEM in Wales.”
