Center for Scientific Software Infrastructure

The Center for Scientific Software Infrastructure brings together the U-M scientific open source software development community, making its software available to the wider research community. 

We provide grant support and educational resources to research groups that are ready to transform their scientific codes into open source software. Our current faculty is involved in several projects including the development of resilient platforms of natural hazards and disasters, advancement of  battery materials, and design and implementation of quantum models.


We provide workshops on software development, best practices, and management.

Workshops are provided by the programmers assigned to the different projects.
