Turku Institute for Advanced Studies organises a symposium on failure 13.4.2018


What is failure? Is failure necessarily a bad thing? Does it have a virtuous side? Is success even possible without failure? Is fear of failure increasing? If so, what should be done? Join TIAS researchers and keynote speakers as we investigate failure in its myriad forms and revel in the paradox of helping to make our Failure Symposium a success!

​Turku Institute for Advanced Studies​ (TIAS) organises and hosts a symposium on failure on Friday, 13 April 2018 at Sirkkala Campus (Kaivokatu 12, Turku).
