Regional RSE Groups are beginning to form across the UK with the aim of creating a skills network, a local hub for advice, and a great way to network and form collaborations.
Research Software London
The first regional group to be formed was Research Software London organised by Jeremy Cohen at Imperial College London.
Research Software London is a new community for researchers, developers and academics based at institutions in London and the South East of the UK who are involved in writing code as part of their research.
N8CIR RSE Community
N8CIR RSE Community is a network for RSEs working in the N8 Universities. Kirsty Pringle will be leading the N8 CIR RSE Theme.
Kirsty Pringle joined N8 CIR in November 2018 as the Research Software Engineering (RSE) Theme Lead. Based at the University of Leeds, Kirsty will be responsible for building a community of research software engineers across the N8. She will also develop and coordinate two types of training (i) continuous professional development training for RSEs and (ii) technical training for academics (delivered by RSEs), across the eight N8 Universities.
