Our autumn Research Software Camp addresses approaches to wellbeing and mental health in research software, running from 7 to 18 November 2022. Registrations for our live sessions are now closed.

Recent years have seen better acknowledgement of the importance of wellbeing and good mental health in the workplace. However, writing code for research is a relatively newly recognised aspect in academia and, as such, a long road is still ahead of us when it comes to speaking openly about, and offering solutions to, stressors that can affect people’s wellbeing and mental health in research software working environments. 

We will also publish curated online resources throughout the two weeks of the Camp, addressing varying approaches to wellbeing and mental health in research software. Access these resources from the menu below. Our team will be running a parallel social media campaign using #RSCamps on Twitter. 

Research Software Camps welcome all researchers, who use and/or develop code in their research, and Research Software Engineers from all career stages and domains. Please note we will not run a mentorship programme this time. The programme will resume next year.
