The Software Sustainability Institute is a leading international authority on research software sustainability, working with researchers, funders, software engineers, managers, and other stakeholders across the research spectrum. The Institute was recently 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. Since 2010, the Institute has developed and advocated for an understanding of the fundamental importance of research software, its developers and users, its requirements, and how software advances research in the UK.
