The Netherlands Research Software Engineer community
The increasing use of data and digital technology in academia has gone hand in hand with a strong growth in people who write and contribute to research software. Positions like data steward, information manager, research data officer, research software engineer, research supporter and other titles are increasingly recognized as intrinsic positions in the academic system.
Following the great initiatives in the UK and Germany, we plan to bring together the community of people writing and contributing to research software from Dutch universities, knowledge institutes, companies and other organizations to share knowledge, to organize meetings, and raise awareness for the scientific recognition of research software.

FAIR data has been on everybody’s lips for a while. Many think that FAIR software will become “the next big thing” in eScience. Reasons enough to devote a session at the National eScience Symposium to the discussion of FAIR and its meaning for research software.Read more
