The Working Group Research Software Engineering (WG infra-RSE) of the NFDI Section Common Infrastructures brings the NFDI consortia together in all software-related aspects of the joint development of the National Research Data Infrastructure (NFDI). Firstly, the WG addresses software infrastructure components that, taken together, represent an integral part of the NFDI with its networked structure. Secondly, the WG also addresses research software for working with research data. Last but not least, the WG also addresses the needs of research software engineers (RSEs) by providing RSE- and NFDI-specific communication and networking channels.
