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. 
The winning proposals for our call for developing training materials for data science have been chosen.

By Reka Solymosi, Software Sustainability Institute Fellow. From 4 – 5 April 2019, I attended the Women in Data Science Zurich 2019 conference as an invited speaker to talk about my research involving ‘new’ forms of data. In particular the use of crowdsourced data collection methods to gain insight into people’s perceptions and subjective evaluations of their environments.
