More about Collaborations Workshop 2021

The Software Sustainability Institute invites all members of the research software community to explore and discuss the themes described above and other related issues at CW21.

CW21 participants will gain insight into the topics of FAIR Research Software, Diversity and Inclusion, and Software Sustainability and how these impact on research. It is also an ideal opportunity to form collaborations (on average, CW participants start two new collaborations by attending) and to discuss topics proposed by attendees. CW21 is a great place to network and participants will meet many of the new and existing Software Sustainability Institute Fellows – key ambassadors in varied research domains.

Take a look at the Highlights from Collaborations Workshop 2020 and the videos on better and sustainable research software to better understand what happens at a Collaborations Workshop. Also please read the various blog posts from previous Collaborations Workshops to better understand why you should attend and what you will gain.
