In a changing environment that experiences a number of external forces and influences such as REF & Brexit it is important that institutions have a healthy and prosperous research culture. But what does a healthy and prosperous research culture mean? Join us to explore the what, they how and the why of research culture, sharing best practice through peer learning and working towards developing best practice for the sector.

Encompassing all facets of research activity, including researcher development, funding, publication and diversity, research culture is necessary to be able to respond to changes and maintain competitiveness. While research culture has obvious benefits to each institution such as recruitment and improving research positioning, it cannot be left at an institutional level, requiring sectoral buy-in that challenges external norms. As an association we have a role in the development and maintenance of research culture and invite conference attendees to, through a ‘World Cafe’ format, explore what research culture means to a variety of organisations and discuss how to lead the agenda for a healthy and prosperous research culture at their institution.
