    <subfield code="a">&lt;p&gt;From January 2021 until July 2021, a group of members of the POP consortium, DiRAC, the&lt;br&gt;
N8 CIR, Durham University&amp;rsquo;s Institute for Computational Cosmology and members of Computer&lt;br&gt;
Science organised a series of seven workshops around performance analysis and optimisation. The&lt;br&gt;
series covered a variety of tools, featured different invited speakers, and addressed inter-node, intra-&lt;br&gt;
node and core-level runtime efficiency. In contrast to established workshops that usually run en&lt;br&gt;
bloc over multiple days with individual participants, we organised a series of one-day workshops&lt;br&gt;
and invited teams of participants. Each team consisted of multiple (3&amp;ndash;7) scientific software&lt;br&gt;
developers working together on one code base. This report summarises the workshops as well as&lt;br&gt;
feedback gathered at the end and throughout the series. It discusses interesting lessons learned&lt;br&gt;
w.r.t. the status quo of the codes/teams that signed up for the series, it summarises impressions&lt;br&gt;
regarding the training status and needs of the participants, and it relates these take-aways to&lt;br&gt;
current discussions around the training of high-performance computing application developers in&lt;br&gt;
the UK.&lt;/p&gt;</subfield>
