Exhibition Trial & Error Award

We're thrilled to announce an exhibition on a unique collaboration between the Utrecht Young Academy and the Journal of Trial and Error: The Trial and Error Award. This award is a tribute to the often undervalued aspect of research – learning from failure. Our aim is to spotlight the resilience and insights gained from overcoming research challenges.

In an inspiring partnership with Sint Lucas creative school in Boxtel, we witnessed the combination of art and failed research. Fifteen talented students visualised the concept of failure, each crafting a unique award. Isolde Eickmans’ exceptional work has been selected as our official award, but every creation tells its own story of perseverance and learning.

Therefore, from 18 January to 22 February, all designed awards can be admired in the University Library Hall at Drift 27!
