About this event

The Research Software Alliance (ReSA) and the Netherlands eScience Center are hosting a two-day international workshop. This workshop is intended to set the future agenda for national and international funders to support sustainable research software on 8 and 9 November at the Hermitage Museum in Amsterdam. Be sure to join our meet and greet borrel (drinks & walking dinner) on 7 November with location to be announced.

As the importance of software in research has become increasingly apparent, so has the urgent need to sustain it. Funders can play a crucial role in this respect by ensuring structural support. Over the past few years, a variety of methods for sustaining research software have been explored, including improving and extending funding policies and instruments. During the workshop, funding organizations will join forces to explore how they can effectively contribute to making research software sustainable.

Additional support to increase accessibility will be available on request. Online opportunities will be provided to contribute to discussions around and during the conference, and recordings of the plenary presentations will be made available.

Please note this workshop is open to national research funding organizations, by invitation. If you are interested in attending but have not received an invitation, please contact us at events@esciencecenter.nl

Why are we hosting this international workshop?

In this modern age, research is nearly impossible to do without research software. One of top priorities at the Netherlands eScience Center has always been to obtain recognition for research software and the role of research software engineers (RSEs) behind it. But the world of research is international, and pulling this off on a global level requires the minds of many experts across many institutions to work together.
