Sustainable Software for Audio and Music Research aims to support the sustainable development and use of software and data to enable high quality research in the audio and music research community.
Since 1997, Software Carpentry has taught scientists and engineers the concepts, skills, and tools they need to use and build software more productively. All of the content is freely available under a Creative Commons license, and we are constantly adding and updating lectures, videos, and exercises.
Digital Social Research
The Digital Social Research strategy is to develop a coherent inter-agency approach to maximise the uptake, use and impact of new digital technologies across the social science community.
Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC)
The EPSRC are the main UK government agency for funding research and training in engineering and the physical sciences, investing more than £850 million a year.
Joint Information Systems Committee (JISC)
JISC inspires UK colleges and universities in the innovative use of digital technologies, helping to maintain the UK’s position as a global leader in education.
Muon Ionization Cooling Experiment
The Muon Ionization Cooling Experiment (MICE) is a UK-based, international collaboration of around 100 particle and accelerator physicists. The collaboration is based at the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory and will build a part of a neutrino factory.
TEXTvre provides researchers with advanced services to process and analyse research texts that are held in formally managed, metadata-rich institutional repositories.
The Culham Centre for Fusion Energy
The Culham Centre for Fusion Energy is one of the world's leading fusion research laboratories. Our scientists and engineers are working with partners around the globe to develop fusion as a new source of clean energy for tomorrow's power stations.
The Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research
The Tyndall Centre brings together scientists, economists, engineers and social scientists who are working to develop sustainable responses to climate change.
WorldWide Fund for Nature
The Worldwide Fund for Nature (also known as the WWF) believes in a future where people and nature thrive. Best known as the world’s leading conservation body, it has seen first-hand how wildlife, the environment and human activity are all interlinked.
The WWF's passion for safeguarding the natural world has to be backed up by other environmental action – tackling the global threat of climate change and helping people to change the way they live to ease pressure on natural resources. WWF is at the heart of global activities in all these areas. They have teams of highly skilled professionals working with governments, businesses and communities in the UK and around the world.
Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC)
The Science and Technology Facilities Council is an independent, non-departmental public body of the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills. It is a science-driven organisation, which makes it possible for a broad range of scientists to do the highest quality research and tackle some of the most fundamental scientific questions.
University College London (UCL)
UCL is a modern, outward-looking institution, committed to engaging with the major issues of our times. One of the world’s leading multidisciplinary universities, UCL today is a true academic powerhouse.
Clinical Research Facility Edinburgh (CRFE)
The CRFE provides state-of-the-art facilities for investigators undertaking Clinical Research, which includes clinical, laboratory and specialised technical support. The facility operates under a consortium partnership involving the University of Edinburgh and Lothian Health.
There is a common application and administrative process for applications and investigators can apply to use any, or all, of the resources available. Any local clinician researcher (including medical, nurses and AHP’s) can apply to use the facilities.
Heriot-Watt University is renowned for its leadership on critical global issues and is recognised throughout the world for the quality of its teaching and applied research capability
