Infuse is an innovation and research programme designed to build skills and capacity for innovative future public services across the Cardiff Capital Region (CCR).

Infuse offers Associates the chance to collaboratively tackle some of the biggest issues faced by the region. As part of their time on the programme, they will have an opportunity to learn about and apply new tools and approaches to help deliver successful public service innovations and test an idea they have designed to help tackle challenges on the themes of Accelerating Decarbonisation & Supportive Communities.

The Programme will run until 2023, working with four cohorts of local authority, public and third sector workers from across the Cardiff Capital Region. Infuse is supported by the European Social Fund through Welsh Government and is a collaboration between Cardiff University, Y Lab, Nesta, CCR and the ten local authorities that make up the region led by Monmouthshire County Council.
