Where we focus
We believe in bringing the right digital skills to support compelling research questions. This includes the quality of our technological expertise and our software, and the way we collaborate with academic researchers. It also includes the impact of our activities and the dissemination of our skills. Finally, we passionately believe in sustainable, reusable software. This is open science in practice.
Read our recently released 2024 Technology Forecast where we highlight the transformative trends in AI, computing, data processing and data analytics.
In the spirit of open science, we're passionate advocates for sustainable software. And as software becomes more important in academia, so too does its quality and sustainability. In short, better research software leads to better, more sustainable research. For researchers to get the most value...More info
