Event description

Description

The Software Sustainability Institute in conjunction with ELIXIR-UK and the BBSRC are organising a workshop entitled “Developing Software Guidance for BBSRC” in Manchester on 24 April 2017. The aim of this workshop is to develop community advice to BBSRC on:

  • The areas within the life sciences where software is being used, and

  • Appropriate written guidance for applicants and reviewers on how to make software reusable

Workshop attendees are drawn from a wide range of stakeholders representing life sciences researchers, research software engineers, funders, infrastructure providers, industry, legal experts, and related fields.

The workshop format will consist of scene-setting introductions, followed by two sets of discussions to agree and formulate specific guidance for BBSRC reviewers, applicants and users describing how to make software (re)usable that can be made available on the BBSRC website. Additionally, it is hoped that the workshop will provide a greater insight into the areas within the life sciences where software is being used and the current barriers to reuse.
