ADAPT to Thrive is an event series for ECRs where their peers and senior researchers share their experiences on how they failed and lived to tell the story.
Taking risks and failing is an integral part of building a research career. By sharing the experiences of researchers at different career stages the ADAPT event series provides early career researchers with support by showcasing how failure and success walk hand in hand.
ADAPT to Thrive will:
Normalise speaking out about failure and reducing stigma.
Help build a more resilient academic community by facilitating conversations and allowing early and mid-career researchers to find support networks.
Shift the perception of risk and encourage early and mid-career researchers to take new approaches to their careers and pursue unconventional ideas.

The event will be followed by a drinks reception and refreshments for further networking and discussion.
