Members of the Science Advisory Council for Wales (SACW) are experts in a range of subjects. SACW reports and provides advice to the Chief Scientific Adviser on science, technology, engineering and mathematics issues. These are key to the economy and prosperity of Wales.

SACW reports directly to the Chief Scientific Adviser, rather than to Ministers, and has no statutory or financial responsibilities. The appointments are unpaid. SACW is chaired by the Chief Scientific Adviser, and has an independent co-chair, Professor Chris Pollock.
