ReSA aims to advance the research software ecosystem by collaborating with decision makers and key influencers. ReSA is a fiscally sponsored project of Code for Science & Society and led by the ReSA Steering Committee.

In 2022 ReSA co-hosted an international funders’ forum meeting that led to the development of the Amsterdam Declaration on Funding Research Software Sustainability. ReSA also convenes task groups to study matters related to research software in institutional policy and research software funding opportunities.
