Sustainable Research Software Survey


I received this survey that I thought would be of interest to the broader community.

On behalf of the NSF-Funded US Research Software Sustainability Institute (URSSI) conceptualization project (, we are looking for your opinions about needs in the US research software community. Please consider participating in our brief 10 to 15 minute survey ( to provide input about how to increase the amount of sustainable research software that is available and how to increase and improve the research that relies on that software. We will use this information to plan a potential institute to carry out some of the activities in response to the needs.

Please feel free to share this survey with other research software developers and users.

Thanks, interesting survey. A US-based RSE path would definitely be very useful.
This might also be interesting to post on cig-all or aspect-devel?
We could also move this post over to the general category.

I am afraid people will not look there! I am going to re-post in ASPECT.
