What is the Research Directory or Portfolio?

The Research Directory is a register of the research activities currently being undertaken across Wales. The Directory includes the Health and Care Research Wales Portfolio, Biobanks, research data registries and non-portfolio studies. The Health and Care Research Wales Portfolio includes high-quality non-commercial research that meets specific eligibility criteria and commercial research.

In this section you can learn more about why it is important to be registered on the directory or portfolio and how to go about it.
