You are invited to the FEM Annual Event on Thursday 8 June 2023: 
"Failure Festival"
This year, the event will be taking place at the Bonnefanten Museum in Maastricht and will cover the topic of failure and how to normalize it.

📅 Thursday, June 8 2023

⏰ 13:30 - 18:00 CEST


You are invited to join us at the Failure Festival, where we'll be celebrating the power of failure as a driver for personal and professional growth.

Our keynote speaker, Prof. Melanie Stefan, will be sharing her insights and experience on the subject of failure in science, and she will will advocate for an open discussion about failure in science, including a “CV of failures” instead of the perfectly polished CV as a way to learn from our setbacks and mistakes.

At the Failure Festival, we believe that failure is not something to be feared, but rather an essential companion in our journey to success.

Through thought-provoking talks, interactive workshops, and networking opportunities, we'll explore how to befriend failure and reframe its impact on our lives!


Looking forward to seeing you there!
