The announcement below just popped in to my inbox and I thought it might be of interest to Digitally Ready folks:
The Software Sustainability Institute (www.software.ac.uk) has launched a Fellowship programme that recognises outstanding UK-based researchers who use software. The Fellowships come with £3000 funding which can be used for travel, collaboration and running events.
Fellows advise the Institute on important software, evangelise software practices and champion the adoption of best-of-breed software. Fellows will contribute to their blog, and are supported in advertising their own research.
