As individuals and researchers, we are concerned with environmental challenges and deeply aware of the necessity to be more sustainable. But in practice, what does this entail? How can a researcher’s activity be “sustainable,” and how do we integrate sustainable practices into research projects? Where do we start? In this presentation, I will propose a list of actionable rules to facilitate the contribution of anyone in the community towards sustainable research. These rules address a variety of topics, such as training on environmental issues or comprehensively evaluating the impacts of a research, with different levels of potential impact, to illustrate the breadth of possible actions.
