What's it about
The Fellowship Programme run by the Software Sustainability Institute
(www.software.ac.uk) funds researchers in exchange for their expertise
and advice. The main goals of the Programme are encouraging best
practice and gathering information about research software from all
disciplines, and encouraging Fellows to develop their interests in the
area of software sustainability (especially in their areas of work).
The Programme also supports capacity building and policy development
Each Fellow is allocated £3,000 to spend over fifteen months. The
funding is flexible to support activities that are beneficial to both
the Fellows and the Institute: for instance, to fund travel to
conferences, to setup and run workshops, to organise software
sustainability sessions at domain conferences, or to host, organise or
teach at Software Carpentry or similar training events.
Fellows are drawn from a wide range of areas, experience, and career
