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.
We’re also seeking views at events around the country, culminating in our Reimagine Research Solutions Summit in March 2020 to bring together what we’ve heard. More information about the summit will be available soon.
