Aalto RSE supports the whole university, and Richard Darst and other Aalto RSE members will discuss the history behind their team, the way it works, future prospects, and lessons for others. This talk will focus on the administrative side of things, and discussion will focus on what one should know to reproduce this work at other universities. Aalto University is the leading technical university in Finland. Started in 2020, Aalto RSE now serves the entire university in computing, data, and software problems. They work as part of Science-IT, which is effectively the local "HPC team". They have good connections to the local IT Services, Data Agents, and other research services. - What do we want Nordic RSE to be? - We started discussing about who is the "target" of the association, and what we want to be for our members. - Are we a group of professionals sharing stories, or are we a community that helps each other to build more for ourselves? - How do we build the community? We seem to agree that physical presence is needed, as well as a written out direction. Organizing a conference takes too much time and effort for many of us. But maybe having presence in other conferences might be a good step. - Ultimately, we also think that the success of other associations is partly explained by their member composition, which might be more willing to engage in "extra" activities that help them further their career or building a network. - We decide to talk more about these topics in the weeks to come and trying to have them more present in our weekly discussions. - Kickoff meeting for Unconference - Talk next time - Update taskforces (top of document?) - Talk next time - AOB - [Github discussion](https://coderefinery.zulipchat.com/#narrow/stream/119815-general/topic/Is.20GitHub.20bad.3F): should we be concerned? -> talk next time
