Everyone at the Software Sustainability Institute would like to wish our friends and colleagues all the best for the holiday season. 2022 has been a successful year for the Institute and we're already looking ahead to 2023.  With the academic holidays, things will be quiet here at the Institute from 22nd December 2022 until 4th January 2023. During this time, we will not be responding to enquiries. Our return in the New Year will be accompanied by an announcement of our activities and events in 2023.
