The Special Interest Group Data Infrastructure offers a forum to interested working groups that want to set up or further develop an RDM infrastructure at working group or institute level. We invite you to a monthly SIGDIUS seminar, to which we invite internal and external experts for presentations and discussions. SIGDIUS members will have the opportunity to exchange their experiences with concrete RDM infrastructures.

We cordially invite all interested parties to our next meeting on 11 January 2023 at 2 pm. This seminar will be held as an online seminar. For participation, please send an e-mail to

Better Software, Better Research: how has the Software Sustainability Institute changed research software practice?

Research Is now reliant on software, but many researchers have not received a lot of formal training in software development. The Software Sustainability Institute (SSI) was established in the United Kingdom in 2010 to “cultivate better, more sustainable, research software to enable world-class research”. Along the way, it has collaborated with hundreds of organisations to change the research culture around software. In this talk, I will present some of the SSI’s mechanisms for supporting researchers to write and publish better software, from training to career pathways to recognition, as well as giving some tips on what you can do right now to improve practice in your own groups and communities.
