The culture of science needs to change to meet growing demands as research becomes more complex and puts greater stress on the research community, according to a recent statement from Science Europe, an association of 38 research organizations in 28 European countries. The declaration presents a goal of moving toward a science community that emphasizes research quality while recognizing each participant’s contributions, improving training and ethics, and promoting diversity and inclusion. It also makes several pledges to foster such a culture. For instance, member organizations will revisit their incentive and reward structures for scientists and will recognize a broader range of research roles—especially those of early-career scientists in collaborative and team research. “Research culture influences how research is performed, communicated, and evaluated,” Science Europe president Marc Schiltz says in a press release. “We, as funding and performing research institutions, have now more than ever a responsibility to create together a common understanding and a long term vision for a research culture of the European Research Area,” which is made up of the countries in the European Union.
