Software Sustainability Institute to improve research software practices with £6.5 million UKRI funding

The Software Sustainability Institute, a team of software experts, from the universities of Edinburgh, Manchester, Oxford and Southampton, has been awarded £6.5 million funding, from the seven UK Research Councils that are part of UK Research and Innovation (UKRI), to continue its world-leading work helping thousands of UK researchers from all areas use software to increase the impact of their research.

The Institute was initially funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) in 2010. In 2016, Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC), and Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC), joined EPSRC to further invest and help continue the work of the Institute throughout its second phase.

This new third phase of The Software Sustainability Institute has been funded by all research councils until 2023.
