Cardiff Capital Region (CCR) will co-sponsor the Science & Technology Village at the 2024 National Eisteddfod.

They will be teaming up with the University of South Wales (USW). The festival, one of Europe's largest cultural events, will be held in Pontypridd for the first time since 1893.

CCR will have a cabin in the village to promote careers and upskilling opportunities in technology and advise children on science and technology career paths.

CCR will also speak in the Village's Dome, discussing its low-carbon future plans.

Cllr Mary Ann Brocklesby, chairwoman of the CCR committee, said: "We are excited to be co-sponsoring the Science and Technology Village at this year’s National Eisteddfod.

"We are thrilled to be sharing this sponsorship with the University of South Wales, allowing us both to demonstrate real support and leadership in cultural, language and STEM subject areas."

Cllr Andrew Morgan OBE, leader of Rhondda Cynon Taf County Borough Council, added: "This is a tremendous opportunity for Cardiff Capital Region to showcase its ambitions and share what CCR offers the science and technology world."

Dr Ben Calvert, vice-chancellor of USW, said they are delighted to be sponsoring the Science and Technology Village with Cardiff Capital Region at this year’s Eisteddfod.
