About Nesta

Nesta is an innovation foundation. For us, innovation means turning bold ideas into reality and changing lives for the better. We use our expertise, skills and funding in areas where there are big challenges facing society.

Our research integrity policy sets out the ways in which we support best practices and our expectations for standards in this area.

With this document, we:

  • fulfil an obligation to maintain Independent Research Organisation (IRO) status with the UKRI
  • outline how we monitor research misconduct and conflict of interest in research
  • lay the first stones to build around other dimensions of a good research culture
  • start a conversation across teams to draw on research expertise and inform next steps
