Collaborations Workshop 2019 (CW19) will take place from Monday 1st to Wednesday 3rd April 2019 at Loughborough University in the West Park Teaching Hub. The Software Sustainability Institute’s Collaborations Workshop series brings together researchers, developers, innovators, managers, funders, publishers, leaders and educators to explore best practices and the future of research software.
September 4 and 5 marked the second instance of the eLife Innovation Sprint, a collaborative event where 60 researchers, developers, designers, technologists, publishers and others gather to develop open-source prototypes for open science and research communication.
In March 2019, a group of active members of the research software community in the Netherlands had a meeting with NWO (The Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research) to discuss the importance of research software in contemporary research and its relationship to research data, open science, and reproducibility in research (please see Making Research Software a First-Class Citizen in Research).
Andrew Stewart, senior lecturer in the Division of Neuroscience and Experimental Psychology at the University of Manchester, looks at how his Software Sustainability Institute Fellowship has helped his work.
What are your goals for 2020? Would £3000 help you achieve them? The Institute's Fellowship programme funds researchers, software engineers and advocates who want to improve computational practice in their areas of work. We have recently opened the call for applications to the Fellowship Programme 2020 until 29 October 2019.
Voting for the 12 trustees of the newly formed Society of Research Software Engineering will close at midnight on Friday 11 October and all members are encouraged to vote.
