A Values Framework for the Organisation of Research

Values underpin research culture, and influence and improve trust across all aspects of the research ecosystem. Despite this, they are often presumed and unwritten. Science Europe presents a set of shared values to serve as a reference for the policies and practices implemented by Science Europe Member Organisations and as a foundation for collaboration on actions to further embed these values as part of the research system.


The framework is a foundation for appraisal and adaptation, and can contribute to the evolution of research culture. It enables a flexible approach, accommodating a diversity of practices whilst recognising that common values underlie research processes and outcomes as well as research management and governance.
