Our new alumni programme HIVE offers long term career support and networking for all previous Academy grant awardees and programme participants.
For over twenty years since the Academy was founded, we have supported a diverse range of experts across biomedical and health science. In recognition of the value of this talented group, we are launching a new alumni programme: HIVE. The Academy is delighted that HIVE is open to previous participants of all Academy grant schemes and programmes.
The way into our HIVE alumni network is through our online portal.
This portal provides resources, updates, connections and more through a simple registration.
To register, click below and follow the joining instructions.
Please download the guidance notes from the right hand side of this page to assist you, and if you have any queries after referring to the guidance notes please email us at: AMS.HIVE@acmedsci.ac.uk.
Are you currently a member of the Academy's PILLAR community network programme? Has your grant or programme participation come to an end?
As our PILLAR network is for our current awardees and programme participants, we would encourage you to transfer yourself to our HIVE alumni network using the registration link above. You will lose access to the PILLAR portal, but don't worry - your portal profile, messages, groups settings, and the resources you have access to will stay the same.

Our HIVE alumni programme aims to:

HIVE alumni portal
The HIVE alumni online portal is an exclusive space, accessible to only the Academy’s alumni community. It is a hub of career development resources, opportunities to take part in the Academy’s work, and opportunities shared by other alumni.
The portal will enable you to virtually meet other Academy alumni from across the globe. Our alumni community spans a diverse range of backgrounds, sectors, industries and areas of expertise – we hope you enjoy this new exclusive way to connect with each other.
The Academy hopes that this new HIVE alumni programme will help to convene the expertise and knowledge of our former grant awardees and programme participants, and alumni who register through the portal will be invited to provide their valuable input to Academy activities when opportunities become available.
HIVE alumni members who register through the portal will be invited to a dedicated annual alumni event tailored to the community’s interests. You will also receive updates and invites for other ongoing training opportunities and Academy lectures and talks.
HIVE alumni members who register through the portal will be automatically signed up to receive tailored quarterly update newsletters. These will showcase new opportunities and provide connections to ongoing work through the Academy, our partners, and other alumni.
If you would prefer not to receive these newsletters, you can unsubscribe by following the relevant link within the newsletter, or by emailing the team.
We have co-developed our HIVE alumni programme in collaboration with representatives from across the Academy’s grant schemes and programmes, in order to ensure that what we offer matters to you. In keeping with this co-development ethos, we would love to hear from alumni who are interested in helping us continue to build our HIVE alumni programme into a unique and valuable support package – please contact AMS.HIVE@acmedsci.ac.uk.
The launch event for our HIVE alumni programme will be from 10.00am –12.00pm (BST) on Tuesday 21 September 2021.
We're delighted to announce that Professor Jonathan Van-Tam MBE FMedSci, Deputy Chief Medical Officer for England, will be joining us in conversation with Academy President Professor Dame Anne Johnson PMedSci. The event will introduce the HIVE alumni programme and online portal and include networking and conversation. The event will be held virtually, so you can join us from wherever you are based.
