CS&S is excited to announce that the US Research Software Sustainability Institute (URSSI) has joined our community of fiscally sponsored projects. URSSI’s vision is to empower people, build better software, and enable exceptional research.
The CS&S Event Fund invests in emerging community leaders around the world to support the organizing of events that broaden participation in open data science. Our program aims to strengthen community-driven infrastructures for data science that shift power to historically marginalized communities.
