Learn with the Software Sustainability Institute
Since 2010, the SSI has played a vital role in improving research culture, revolutionising access to software training and working with our collaborators to develop policies that better recognise and support software in research. Our guides provide detailed advice on everything from better development practices to how to build a community for your software.
We fund researchers, research software engineers, and industry staff who want to improve software practices in their areas.

We created and now maintain a scalable and sustainable national training environment by developing new courses, organising workshops, and bringing in and training new instructors.

We provide consultancy and guidance to both software experts and beginners in 30+ countries.
