&lt;p&gt;Most research would be impossible without software, and this reliance is forcing a rethink of the skills needed in a &lt;em&gt;traditional &lt;/em&gt;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. &lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;The UK has led the world in supporting a new role in academia: the &lt;em&gt;Research Software Engineer &lt;/em&gt;(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. &lt;/p&gt;</subfield>
