This report examines the nature of creativity and presents the views of agricultural scientists and their managers on factors affecting creativity in research.

These factors include how the work is conceived, funded, managed, and communicated and applied. It is thus a valuable resource for all those interested in improving research outcomes.

The report concludes by proposing several principles whose application would remove existing constraints on creativity in agricultural research without diminution of the relevance and accountability of the work.
