What is healthy research culture and how can we facilitate it?

What makes a healthy research culture? What can “healthy” mean in an academic market driven by the logic of “publish or perish” (or “publish and perish”), the obstacles surrounding academic careers and manifold external pressures from politics, media and the public? How can universities create and uphold a healthy research culture? Four current and former university leaders delve into these and other aspects of healthy research cultures, reflecting on their own role as shapers of academic culture.

Healthy research culture during PhD Studies

All PhD students are kindly invited to have brunch with Prof. Dame Sarah Springman, former Rec-tor of ETH Zurich and Principal of the St. Hilda’s College at the University of Oxford to discuss how they experience research culture.

What would need to change in their fields’ research culture? What do PhD students expect from their supervisor, the university and what can PhD students themselves contribute to healthy research en-vironments?
