HIVE - alumni network

The Academy's 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 launched our alumni programme - HIVE. The Academy is delighted that HIVE is open to previous participants of all Academy grant schemes and programmes.

Our HIVE alumni programme aims to:

  • Enable networking among our alumni
  • Provide longer-term career support
  • Keep Academy alumni updated on current Academy work and opportunities
  • Bring alumni into current Academy work, offering opportunities throughout policy, careers and more for influential new voices


All HIVE members are also eligible to join our mentoring scheme. If you would like to join, please register for the Academy's Portal using the email address associated with your previous award.

  • Online hub

The HIVE hub is an exclusive space, accessible only to 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 hub 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 the HIVE alumni programme will help to convene the expertise and knowledge of our former grant awardees and programme participants, and alumni who register for the hub will be invited to provide their valuable input to Academy activities when opportunities become available.

  • Events

HIVE members are invited to dedicated events tailored to the community’s interests. You will also receive updates and invites for other ongoing training opportunities and Academy lectures and talks.

  • Newsletters

HIVE members will be automatically signed up to receive tailored 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.
