About our session at ESOF2022
The popular Netflix series The Chair, shows overtly stereotypical characters in a conventional academic setting. The protagonist is the first female Chair of the department, as well as the youngest, and the first person of colour. In addition, she is trying to achieve a work-life balance as a single mother to a young child. The show deals with her struggles as she tries to bring about positive transformation, in a department that is failing but where many colleagues are resistant to change, and real power rests elsewhere in the College.
On 11 October, an international audience of 150 people joined our panel of experts to discuss the impact that moving away from fossil fuels to new energy sources may have on our lives.
This online event was organised by SAPEA (Science Advice for Policy by European Academies) and Academia Europaea.

This briefing paper summarises key themes and ideas discussed at our ‘Research Integrity: supporting early-career researchers in cases of alleged scientific misconduct’ webinar, held on 22nd March 2021.
At the webinar, our panel of experts explored what happens when an early-career researcher observes a more senior colleague apparently engaging in possible malpractice and what processes are in place to address potential problems and protect those involved. The backdrop to the discussion was a paper by four of the panellists, outlining one possible mechanism for investigating reported cases of possible misconduct.
The first paper in the series, ‘Digital Media in crisis situations: Rethinking their role and function’, is available now.
The Briefing Series has been developed to complement AE Cardiff’s webinar series.
