Usually, Fellows would meet face to face for the first time during the Inaugural Meeting but this was a special year and some of them met during Collaborations Workshop 2019. On 21 May 2019, this year’s cohort of Fellows got together in Manchester to receive orientation from staff and introduce themselves to their peers.
It is with mixed emotions that I announce today is my last day as Community Officer at the Software Sustainability Institute. This might not be a surprise for some as earlier this year we announced that we would be hiring a Research Software Community Officer/Manager.

On Friday 11th January 2019 we hosted the Fellowship Programme 2019 Launch Webinar with the participation of Fellows Becky Arnold, Martin Donnelly, Vincent Knight, Danny Wong and Yo Yehudi. Applications to the Fellowship Programme are open until 3rd February 2019.
