The Software Sustainability Institute
By Reka Solymosi, University of Manchester. In October 2018 I was part of a team who organised the first ever (UK) North West Universities R Day. Inspired by the series of events organised by the R user groups based at the University of Manchester (UoM) and Manchester Metropolitan University (MMU), we decided to host a one day conference to bring people together around the topic of using R.
Call for topic suggestions and proposals for the first European CarpentryConnect event to be held in Manchester, UK, on 25-27 June 2019 under the theme "Training Communities: Challenges and Opportunities in Europe" is now open.
"We are in a position to fundamentally reorganise the heart of the software.

SSI can assist in having software usable by others not just for a few months or a year, but rather for a much longer software lifetime"
