The Software Sustainability Institute has gathered information on the Centres for Doctoral Training (CDTs) in a map, as some of them may require training in basic software development skills to help scientists improve or speed up their research, ensure that their results are more reliable and verifiable, encourage sharing code and collaboration wit
Centres for Doctoral Training (CDTs), also called Doctoral Training Centres (DTCs), are one of the several ways by which research councils in the UK provide support for advanced, high-level and increasingly interdisciplinary scientific training following undergraduate studies.
Software is of fundamental importance to most research, but many of the next generation of researchers will lack the skills they need to exploit it.
The Institute's training activities have received a lot of interest from various international projects and institutions focusing on supporting research.
