Sloan grantees for exploring UX in scientific OSS

Sloan recently funded some research grants looking at UX and scientific OSS, which relates to the Sustain Design working group pretty closely. Perhaps we should interview some of the grantees on the podcast?

sounds like a fine idea to me.

Sounds good but I can’t see a list of people/link to a list of grantees so looks like they haven’t administered the grants yet?

Can you see the " New grants in the Better Software for Science program" section?

Check out some of their recent work here, here, and here.
