Are you involved in the management or execution of funded projects whereby the research was dependent on bespoke software? You are invited to participate in the Impact of Management and Process on Research Software (IMPARS) study led by Software Sustainability Institute Fellow Sorrel Harriet

The study is seeking to understand how software projects are managed and evaluated throughout the funding life-cycle and beyond. The broad aim is to identify common strengths/weaknesses that could inform recommendations for more effective project management strategies and approaches to the reporting of software-dependent research evidence.

Your participation in this research would involve taking part in a one-to-one interview at your institution or over a web-based video conferencing platform. You may also be asked to complete a short electronic survey after the interview. Participation in this research is anonymous.

Find out more about the project and interview format via the IMPARS web pages
