Wellcome Trust research culture survey

09 Oct 2019

The Wellcome Trust are launching an exciting new campaign on research culture. The emphasis is very much on co-creation with the community, with the challenge for us all to “reimagine the way we do research”. The starting premise is that the emphasis on narrowly defined “excellence” in the research system is stifling diverse thinking and positive behaviours, and that blunt metrics can be damaging.

As they put it, we hold in our hands responsibility not only for scientific knowledge but the scientists of tomorrow. We have to ask ourselves what sort of culture we want to create to have greatest impact, culture that enables us to attracts the right people with the right values to deliver the greatest impact.

To gather the community’s thoughts the Trust are running a survey, so please have your say on the Wellcome's website or click on the following link.

It takes about 20 minutes to complete, and the closing date is 13 October.

Contact details for questions about the survey can be found on the front page of the survey itself.
