The NSF “Training-based Workforce Development for Advanced Cyberinfrastructure (CyberTraining)” program has awarded $500k to the University of Puerto Rico - Mayaguez (UPRM) and Princeton University for a 3-year collaborative research project entitled “Framework for Integrated Research Software Training in High Energy Physics (FIRST-HEP)”. FIRST-HEP aims to develop a community framework for software training to prepare the scientific and engineering workforce needed for the computing challenges of HEP experiments.
Sudhir Malik of UPRM will be the lead PI for the project, in collaboration with Peter Elmer and Ian Cosden from Princeton University. FIRST-HEP will also collaborate with The Carpentries and the HEP Software Foundation.
