PILLAR week (23 November - 27 November)

Make sure you save the date!

Monday 23 November - Friday 27 November


Our career development project to support our awardees and programme participants, Promoting Innovation, Learning, Leadership And Resilience in the research community (PILLAR), is to be launched on Monday 23 November.

Over the last few months, the Academy has been developing a new initiative to support our community, utilising this new virtual world we find ourselves in. PILLAR aims to support both our grant awardees and programme participants in a virtual setting, equipping them with the skills and knowledge that they need to navigate their careers. Through live sessions, recorded content and a host of resources, all permanently available in an exclusive online space, we hope to engage our community and encourage conversations.

The Academy will be running a week of events and sharing resources (chaired by Professor Frances Platt FMedSci), to continue to provide vital support to researchers at this time. Events will include:

  • Career development/training webinars.
  • Creative ways to network and collaborate virtually.
  • Panel discussions.
  • Talks and communications pieces from key individuals, including senior leaders and earlier career researchers.


The agenda for the week will be announced soon, as well as the details with how to log in to the exclusive online space. Check back here for more information in the coming weeks. For any questions or queries, please contact PILLAR@acmedsci.ac.uk.
