Managing research software
Do you write code for data analysis or computational experiments as part of a research project? Or develop software tools for reuse across projects? Depending on your field of research, you may be able to rely on established practices or find yourself wondering which software practices to follow.
We can advise you on the best software practices adapted to your needs and help you develop your software and code in good conditions.
Software skills training
The University Library, the eScience center and SURF regularly organize training workshops:
- The University Library organizes introductory and more advanced software training workshops, for Python, R, Git, shell scripting and software practices.
- The eScience center organizes introductory and more advanced workshops on software skills, software practices and machine learning
- SURF organizes advanced computing workshops for Research & IT
- The VU HCP lab organizes HPC courses targeted at PhD students.
Software development support
Researchers looking for help developing software for a project can turn to the eScience center, which supports researchers with software-engineering services in all fields including the Humanities, either through open calls or on request.
For computationally intensive applications, researchers can contact IT for Research for access to the BAZIS compute cluster or SURF computational resources.
It is also possible to directly apply to SURF for access based on 1-year pilot grants or NWO grants.
