The Software Sustainability Institute’s (SSI) Research Software Camp on research accessibility took place from 21 February to 5 March 2021. In this post, we will share how we used relevant sections of the SSI Event Organisation Guide to plan, organise, and deliver the Camp.
Do you use spreadsheets to conduct your research? Have you recently started coding or want to learn? Would you like some help from a dedicated trainer? We’d like to hear from you!
In December the SSI released the first version of our Event Organisation Guide in which we collated different experiences in running events. In this post, we talk about our five top tips, based on the guide, to organise and run a successful small event or workshop.
The Software Sustainability Institute is delighted to announce that the autumn Research Software Camp: Beyond the Spreadsheet will focus on the uses of spreadsheets in research and first steps into further use of software in research.
The Software Sustainability Institute will be running the autumn edition of our Research Software Camp from 1 to 12 November 2021. The topic will be announced soon.
The Software Sustainability Institute website will be down for scheduled maintenance on Saturday 3 April between 10:00 and 12:00 BST.
ELIXIR-UK recently announced a new FAIR Data Stewardship Training funded by UKRI.  As part of this project, ELIXIR UK is looking to recruit two Data Steward Content Creator and Trainer roles and a Training Fellowship Coordinator. The two Data Steward Content Creators will be responsible for creating training resources for a diverse audience of researchers in the Life and Bioscience domains. These roles will train in research data management and lead the training of a cohort of UK Data Stewards embedded in UK research institutes and universities.

The Software Sustainability Institute is excited to announce its involvement in three successful bids to the UKRI Innovation Scholars: Data Science Training in Health and Bioscience initiative. The programme’s key objective is to produce training opportunities for researchers in areas ranging from bioinformatics to the social sciences, to give them the self-confidence and skills to manage and analyse their data. 
It’s the end of the second and final week of our inaugural Research Software Camp, which has focussed on different aspects of research accessibility. Read some of the highlights from week two.
