Today (13th October 2022) marks International RSE Day, organised by the International Council of RSE Associations. This is a fantastic opportunity to celebrate the contribution of research software engineering (RSE) to UK science. Software is used everywhere in science, from modelling COVID-19, forecasting our future climate and analysing vast quantities of social media data.
The second International Research Software Engineering (RSE) Leaders Workshop will take place online on 15, 16 and 30 September. The workshop brings together established and aspiring leaders from the international RSE community for networking, knowledge exchange, and hands-on collaboration.
