Funding Research Software Engineering
In this episode I speak with Richard Gunn and Sarah King from the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC).
Recognising the work research software engineers do is one thing. But funding and supporting career paths in it quite another.
In the UK, the EPSRC together with the Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC) have provided fellowship programmes to help getting roles and career paths off the ground.
