Failing forward (2021)

The cohort 2021 project is entitled “Failing forward” and seeks to reframe failure in a constructive way to fuel personal and societal development. In a hypercompetitive environment, it is crucial to highlight that failure is also part and parcel of academic success. The broader aim is to balance the record, provide some perspective and encourage colleagues and aspiring scientists to keep trying in the face of recurring rejections and disappointments. The current objective is threefold, namely to 1) assemble a collective CV of failure, 2) write a comic book for children showcasing  stories of failure, and 3) organise an exhibition in collaboration with artists at Wongema.
