As a new institution, we are at the beginning of our journey towards the research culture that we want to foster within Health Data Research UK. Here we set out our aspirations, in various areas that we want to develop, and the policies by which we aim to achieve this culture, in terms of: team science, open science, reproducibility, research assessment, equality, diversity, inclusion and more. We are laying the groundwork and working in partnership – in some cases challenging the status quo – to incentivise a culture of research and innovation that aligns with our corporate values of transparency, optimism, respect, courage and humility.
