HiRSE - Helmholtz Platform for Research Software Engineering

Scientific software is becoming increasingly important for the success of research and to generate new knowledge. However, the importance of codes for science has not yet been recognized at the national level. Also, the evaluation measures for research are not set in a way that would support sustainable work on scientific software. The situation is further complicated as the methods of conventional software engineering addressing an industrial context cannot be transferred one to one to scientific software. Therefore, Research Software Engineering (RSE) is forming as a new subject of investigation, in Europe, Germany and the Helmholtz Association.

In this context, the HiRSE concept (“Helmholtz Platform for Research Software Engineering”) sees the establishment of central activities in RSE and the targeted sustainable funding of strategically important codes by so-called Community Software Infrastructure (CSI) groups as mutually supportive aspects of a single entity.

This Zenodo community is a collection of resources related to the principles and practice of Research Software Engineering (RSE). Intended to be relevant to a broad community of RSEs and RSE leaders or to those outside the field with an interest in improving research software. This may include outputs of research into RSE practices, roles and communities as well as presentations and papers.

Contributions will be assessed for their fit with the scope of the community and their potential relevance to a reasonably broad section of the audience interested in Research Software Engineering. We will check for appropriate and clear licencing and reuse information.
