- 1. Netherlands eScience Center
A presentation given at the International funders workshop on The Future of Research Software, 8 & 9 November 2022, Amsterdam.
In the presentation, I describe what research software is all about, from the perspective of a researcher. The main topic is a classification of research software into several classes:
software is a component in our scientific instruments
is the instrument
software analyses research data
software presents research results
software is superglue, duct tape and lubricant
