The e-Science programme was initiated in the United Kingdom in the early 2000’s with the aim of bringing together researchers in large scale, collaborative projects involving software and computation to solve grand challenges. A legacy of this programme has been an understanding of the importance of the people behind the software, the researchers and research software engineers, as well as the challenges of developing and maintaining code that is reusable given the problems of software decay.

The Software Sustainability Institute has been established in the United Kingdom to provide support and direction for the research software community through consultancy, training, engagement and policy campaigns. Through this it has worked with an international community of collaborators, in the UK, in Europe and across the world to support reusability, research integrity and transparency recognising that to achieve the goals of e-Science, we must change research culture globally.
