All materials used and generated at the Collaborations Workshop 2011, and the materials generated by the work after the workshop, will be listed on this page and made available for download.
Outcomes are changes that will make the life of the researcher easier. They were collected from the reporting back slides and discussions that took place during and after the workshop. The outcomes will be acted on by the Software Sustainability Institute over the coming year.
Some photos from the workshop are available on the photos page.
Videos are available on separate pages:
- Videos of the talks and sponsor talks
- Videos of the lightning talks
- Videos of the reporting back sessions from the breakouts
Videos of the improving collaborations session

The final breakout agenda shows when each breakout took place and approximate number of attendees.
A single slide that was presented to show how breakouts work is also available.
The reporting back template, used by the attendees to record what was discussed at each breakout, is also available.
The reporting back slides from each breakout group are available below. These are the original slides from the workshop, so there might be typos and other mistakes. New, edited versions of the outcomes will be made available soon.

- Bridging the developer researcher divide - group 1
- Bridging the developer researcher divide - group 2
- Bridging the developer researcher divide - group 3
- What's the best way to prepare case studies to show what works for funding?
- Government data is made available through CKAN. What/where is the CKAN for research data?
Breakout 2: Thursday 4.00-5.45
- Can the development community help make my research software more robust?
- How do you measure research impact (of software)?
