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
The N8 Centre of Excellence in Computationally Intensive Research (N8 CIR) RSE community is a network for RSEs working in the N8 Universities. Kirsty Pringle started to build up this community and lead the N8 CIR RSE Theme from 2018 to 2020. From November 2020, Marion Weinzierl took over the RSE Theme Leader role in N8 CIR.
