Champions are your local contact for the UK RSE community.

If you can’t see your place of work listed, and you’d like to help out, then please email the UKRSE Committee at with your details.

As a Champion we ask that you host a seminar for people at your organization about the practice of Research Software Engineering and the UK RSE Association.  You could give this talk yourself or ask another Champion to visit you.
