ADAPT to Thrive

ADAPT to Thrive is an event series for early and mid-career researchers 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 researcher at different career stages the ADAPT Thrive will:

  • Normalise speaking out about failure and reduce 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.

Find out about their stories on the ADAPT to Thrive website - www.adapttothrive.co.uk

If you have any questions or would like to take part as a speaker, please email Alex Teale, Programme Manager at the ACO - a.teale@ucl.ac.uk
