Institutional Strategic Priorities for Research Culture 2020–2025
Research thrives when researchers feel that they are part of a stimulating, fair, and inclusive environment in which colleagues help each other to succeed. Advancing our research culture is about recognising the practical changes we can make to the way we do things and embedding these in all our policies and procedures.
Areas we want to focus on at the University of Glasgow have been incorporated into our Institutional Strategic Priorities for Research Culture 2020-2025 (PDF)
Actions were identified through a series of consultation methods:
- Visits by the VP(Research) to Schools and Institutes (Spring 2019)
- Results of the research culture survey (Summer 2019)
- A workshop on re-imagining research culture (Sept 2019), involving academics, administrators, funders, societies, and publishers.
Actions revolve around five themes: Collegiality; Career development; Research recognition; Open research; and Research integrity. The plan sets out priority activities, timescales and how we will track progress. Reporting will take place annually through our institutional statement on research culture.
