  "abstract": "<p>\u00a0</p>\n\n<p>Most research would be impossible without software, and this reliance is forcing a rethink of the skills needed in a <em>traditional </em>research group. With the emergence of software as the pre-eminent research tool used across all disciplines, comes the realisation that a significant majority of results are based, ultimately, on the skill of the experts who design and build that software.\u00a0</p>\n\n<p>The UK has led the world in supporting a new role in academia: the <em>Research Software Engineer </em>(RSE). This report describes the new expert community that has flourished in UK research, details the successes that have been achieved, and the barriers that prevent further progress.\u00a0</p>",
