The Collaborations Workshop is the annual flagship event of the Software Sustainability Institute. For the last ten years it has brought together researchers, developers, innovators, managers, funders, publishers, leaders, and educators to explore and share best practice.
The Workshop is a highly interactive event with about 100 participants, and is designed to facilitate meeting as many new people as possible. With the global pandemic forcing us to stay at home, could we successfully recreate the experience online, and with only three weeks to prepare?

Lucia Michielin, currently working for the Software Sustainability Institute, tells us about the Edinburgh Carpentries effort and a networking event to be held on the 24th of May.
Edinburgh Carpentries, a new training initiative, was launched on September 2018 at the University of Edinburgh in collaboration with the Software Sustainability Institute. Since then the initiative has started to propagate to other institutes in the Edinburgh area, eg Heriot Watt University. Edinburgh Carpentries uses and leverages teaching materials and infrastructure from The Carpentries (carpentries.org) .

This year's Software Sustainability Institute's Collaboration's Workshop, CW19, was held from 1–3 April at the University of Loughborough. There were almost 70 attendees from all over the UK and further afield too - Germany, the Netherlands and the US. I am of the opinion that this is one of the best types networking workshops I have been to, possibly equalled by the UK RSE conferences.

Recently, with my Software Sustainability Institute (SSI) hat on, we helped to deliver a Software Carpentry Course here at Edinburgh organised by the School of Physics and Astronomy (SOPA). My fellow instructors were my EPCC colleagues Mike Jackson and Neelofer Banglawala, and SOPA's Andy Washbrook.
