We would like to invite everyone working on research software in the Netherlands to participate in the RSE survey and spread the word.
The Netherlands Research Software Engineer community (NL-RSE) was started to gain insight into the various communities of RSEs in the Netherlands and increase the interaction between them. The RSE surveys in the UK in 2016 and 2017 [1, 2] have allowed to gain valuable insights and spread the word about the RSE movement. That is why the Netherlands eScience Center, ePLAN (Platform of eScience/Data Research Centres in the Netherlands), NL-RSE, and the UK RSE Association are organizing this survey for 2017 in the Netherlands.
The study is conducted by the University of Southampton on behalf of the Software Sustainability Institute and complies with University of Southampton ethics guidelines (reference no.: ERGO/FPSE/30610). The investigators are Simon Hettrick and Olivier Philippe. Contacts in the Netherlands are Ben van Werkhoven and Tom Bakker from the Netherlands eScience Center.
