Media enquiries


The Software Sustainability Institute is a national facility for building better software. We help researchers to introduce software into their research or improve the software they already use.

We bring together experts from three universities and many different fields of expertise, including software development, project management, dissemination and outreach. The institute was founded in June 2010. We are funded by a five-year grant from the EPSRC, with additional support for software preservation studies from the JISC.


Media enquiries should be directed to Selina Aragon (+44 (0) 131 651 7749).


The Institute and its affiliates regularly publish articles and opinion pieces across a wide selection of media, all of which are listed on our main publications page.

If you would like a copy of our logo, we have an .eps version and a .png version available for download. If you choose to use it, please email us via and provide your name, the name of the organisation you work for, and the intended use of the logo.

The Software Sustainability Institute's logo must only be used as a single graphical unit, it must not be adapted, re-coloured, or modified in any way other than uniformly re-scaling the logo to fit the intended usage. Two logos are available for use: a full-colour version for use on white and light-coloured backgrounds, and a white version for use on dark backgrounds. Both bitmap and vector versions are available.
