Research culture: let's reimagine how we work together

We want to help build a better research culture – one that is creative, inclusive and honest. Current practices prioritise outputs at almost any cost. This is damaging people’s wellbeing and undermining the quality of research. We can all help to reimagine how research is conducted.

Make your voice heard

Thousands of researchers have taken part in the largest ever survey into experiences of research culture.

Now we want to hear your solutions to some of the concerns that have been raised. As a funder we need to play our part, and your role is essential. Achieving a successful research culture needs collective responsibility and change at all levels.

Your conversations and ideas will help us to craft a set of ambitious goals for creating a better culture.

Host a Café Culture discussion

Sign up to host a Café Culture discussion with your colleagues – to talk about your ideas for change. 

You’ll be able to share your ideas through our online forum, and see what other groups of researchers have suggested. 

We’re also seeking views at events around the country, culminating in our Reimagine Research Solutions Summit in autumn 2020 to bring together what we’ve heard.
