This program helps researchers refine existing software tools to improve usability and robustness or build new tools, disseminate research software beyond the research space in which it is created, and to enhance existing functionality.
The Research Software Development Support Program provides research groups access to a professional research software developer. The research software developer will work alongside the research group on a part-time (up to a 0.5 FTE) basis for 2 to 6 months. There is no direct funding available through this program, but rather access to time from the Data Sciences Institute Research Software Development Team.
