Supporting the individual, cultivating the community

Although research can feel like an individual activity at times, every contribution to the collective knowledge of the academic community has the potential to lay a new foundation for others to build on.

By supporting individuals to take a role in this community, learned societies, associations, and organizations play a crucial role in cultivating knowledge and furthering understanding.

We’re shining a spotlight on the work of these organizations in the Hive of Knowledge.

The real-life stories featured come from individuals whose careers have benefitted from the support of a wider network, whether they’re publishing their first paper, attending an important conference, or adding to their skills as an established academic.
