Mistakes: Portals of Discovery

In this series, leading figures from diverse disciplines discuss mistakes and their causes.

Through a partnership with EFI and the world’s first Library of Mistakes based in Edinburgh, renowned academics and practitioners will explore mistakes and their causes to help us better understand success and failure.

By examining decision-making in the most disparate fields, such as infrastructure, major social challenges and investment decisions, we seek to uncover practical solutions that build on the marginal, the invisible, the dysfunctional and, indeed, the mistake – as to err is human, but to understand failure is to progress.
