Wellcome Survey: Research culture - let's reimagine how we work together

Wellcome has launched a project around “reimagining research”.

The challenge to the science community is to help to ‘reimagine expectations around how research is conducted’ to create a culture that: 

  • supports creativity, with ambitious and collaborative working across disciplines and institutions
  • prioritises diversity & inclusion, so that everyone benefits from supportive relationships no matter what  their background
  • produces open research, which is conducted with honesty and integrity.

To help Wellcome to generate a more robust evidence base for this culture work, it is conducting a survey (open until October 6th) to gather input from the widest range of people possible involved in research.

It is looking for stories about promoting excellence in research and how research culture can / should  be improved.

The survey is seeking to include the views of commercial life science organisations that are heavily involved in research.

Wellcome is planning events in 2020 to share findings and work out next steps.
