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 Bayes Centre (University of Edinburgh), with support from the Scottish Funding Council, is offering a programme of free online courses that aim to give the workforce the tools to upskill and reskill in the field of digital data.
The Carpentries has appointed Kari L. Jordan as its new Executive Director.
CarpentryCon 2020, due to be held at the end of June at the University of Wisconsin, Madison, USA, has been cancelled. Registration fees will be refunded. 

Data Carpentry is running a series of two-day online courses on data skills for beginners, for learners in Scotland or working for Scottish employers (see full criteria below).

By Software Sustainability Institute Fellow Matt Williams, University of Bristol. Last Friday we ran the first online-version of our successful software engineering, data analysis and machine learning workshops. Previously, our workshops were three-hour in-person events. Attendees would work at their own speed through self-guided web-based material.
