Brilliant Failures Award Healthcare 2021

Failures are brilliant when the learning experiences are shared

On 23 March 2021 (14.00 – 16.00) the presentation of the Brilliant Failures Award for Healthcare takes place. By a Brilliant Failure we mean a well-prepared attempt to achieve something where there is a different outcome than planned. Failures are brilliant when they are learned from and the experiences are shared with others.
