  3. About SSEC

The Scientific Software Engineering Center (SSEC) was created in January 2022 within the University of Washington’s eScience Institute. SSEC connects researchers with software engineers who can build scalable, open software in order to facilitate accelerated scientific discovery across fields.
At SSEC, we believe that establishing a strong foundation of open source with a focus on empowering PIs for community adoption will evolve the research software engineering culture and accomplish efficiencies in software deployment for accomplishing scientific breakthroughs. SSEC projects are available publicly on Github to foster our culture of openness.
