Excellence is more than what we do. It’s also how we do it. Share your ideas to #ReimagineResearch 🤔 💡 ✍️ : | #ResearchCulture
Impressed & inspired by major changes seeking to invoke on a range of fronts - in this new initiative it is exploring nothing less than culture change in research addressing hyper-competition, toxic power dynamics & poor leadership behaviour
So what is excellence in #STEM? The Director of the Wellcome Trust said: “The relentless drive for research excellence has created a culture in modern science that cares exclusively about what is achieved and not about how it is achieved.”
What can academia learn from industry? Nice piece in wants to hear more from people working in R&D in industry. How can we improve #ResearchCulture? Take our survey!

Great article by - am so glad Wellcome is taking this seriously. Why we need to reimagine how we do research
Feel very lucky to work in a research environment that's supportive & encourages a work/life balance but I know that's not always the case. Share your experiences to help identify what needs to change & highlight what's great.

Please read this important reflection by *and* complete the survey. I look forward to seeing what the will do to help improve our research culture.
Funders like Wellcome have probably contributed, however inadvertently, to a culture that can be unsupportive at times, and toxic at worst. As outlines today, we're committed to doing what we can to change it. #ReimagineResearch
Thank you - "The relentless drive for research excellence has created a culture in modern science that cares exclusively about what is achieved and not about how it is achieved."
