The NFDI4Culture Expert Forum on Sustainable Software Development held its fourth virtual meeting on 22 November 2022. Invited experts and NFDI4Culture staff discussed how the sustainability of research software can be promoted and further established. For the fourth meeting, the forum chose the topic "Professionalisation in the development of research software". The topic encompasses numerous aspects of an institutional, organisational and individual nature.

With the prospect of further meetings on the other aspects to follow, the focus of the initial meeting was placed on individual professionalisation - also with a view to being able to develop as concrete approaches to action as possible directly from the forum.
