Our website will be at risk during maintenance on Thursday 17 August from 13:30–15:30 BST, and you may experience some disruption using the website within that period.
The HiddenREF committee has published a new article in the Times Higher Education. The article addresses the new rules for REF but highlights there is still a long way to go unless institutions "get over their obsession with publications." In the article "UK HEIs must embrace the REF’s invitation to improve research culture", you can read why the HiddenREF movement is pushing for change and how it's already made a difference.
The Software Sustainability Institute has reached a decision to suspend recruitment activities for its Fellowship Programme 2024. The Programme will return in 2025, and recruitment is likely to resume around September 2024.
The FAIR Data principles originated from data management and were created to improve the infrastructure supporting the re-use of scholarly data. In this post, we have collated resources for making software FAIR.

We’re very proud to announce our 2023 Mentorship Programme cohort will be graduating today (28th June 2023) at 12:00 BST. Our mentees will be sharing their projects, experiences and future plans in lightning talks with brief space for questions. 

We’re into week 2 of the Research Software Camp: FAIR software. Today, we kick-off the week with a panel discussion on “Approaches to FAIR software: opportunities and barriers.” You can register until 11:30am BST. 

Today, the Software Sustainability Institute (SSI) launches its much-anticipated Research Software Camp: FAIR Software.
A selection of free online talks and workshops, part of the Research Software Camp: FAIR software, are now open for registration. All talks and workshops are aimed at a beginner level and no previous knowledge or experience is required. 

This programme includes the schedule for live sessions as part of the Research Software Camp: FAIR software. Note we are running some workshops in other languages. The language of the workshop is noted between parenthesis.
