Research culture describes the environment in which research and innovation happens. It includes the ways in which we collaborate, communicate and interact; the behaviours, expectations, attitudes and values that shape how our research is developed, conducted, disseminated, and used; and the mechanisms by which our work is recognised and rewarded.
The University of Leeds has produced a Statement on Research Culture and we have created a number of resources to help researchers engage with the research culture agenda and build research culture in proposals
Our research culture initiatives – starting formally in 2021 – will be key to delivering the University strategy.

We have published a report on Covid-19 impacts on research culture and environment with a series of recommendations to mitigate ongoing impacts of Covid-19 and to foster a positive research culture and environment going forward.
