Software sustainability

Sustainability means that the software functionality you use today will be available – and continue to be improved and supported – in the future.

EPCC is a world-leading centre for research and practice in software sustainability, undertaking research into metrics, software quality and software engineering in research software, and applying best practice in software engineering enhanced by experience from its software development projects. It is the lead institution of the Software Sustainability Institute as well as the UK coordinator for Software Carpentry and Data Carpentry and co-organiser of the Software Engineering for Science and WSSSPE workshop series.
