The Software Sustainability Institute
By Simon Hettrick, Deputy Director.
The way that the Research Excellence Framework (REF) exercise is conducted overlooks many of the people who are vital to the success of research. That's why we have launched the hidden REF competition, which recognises all research outputs and every role that makes research possible.

"We are in a position to fundamentally reorganise the heart of the software. By doing so, this will enable us to maintain the software into the future and facilitate the process of adding new functionality to the software ... SSI can assist in having software usable by others not just for a few months or a year, but rather for a much longer software lifetime"
