'Star scientists' £50m package to boost Welsh economy


A £50m package has been unveiled to head-hunt the best scientists from across the world and bring them to Wales.

The Ser Cymru (Stars Wales) scheme aims to attract more research funding here.

The Welsh government hope that if they reach their target it could bring £27m every year into the economy.

Jordan Davies was at the launch of the scheme with the chief scientific adviser for Wales, Professor John Harries.
