Reimagine Research Culture Festival

It’s time to build a better research culture – one that is creative, inclusive and honest. Our free online festival from 22 to 26 March 2021 will bring together the research community to take action and help reimagine research.


Four people have a discussion sitting in a circle

Live panels and workshops

Sign up to our live online sessions with leading researchers to discuss how to build a positive research culture. Learn about new approaches and hear what's already working.

What you'll learn 

During the festival, you will:

  • find out what we've heard about research culture from across the research community
  • hear from those already leading the way in improving research culture 
  • learn how other sectors have made major cultural shifts
  • explore the practical steps needed to achieve a better research culture, and what Wellcome and others' first steps are towards this.
