SURF is the IT cooperative of education and research

This is how we innovate IT in education and research

"If we want to work together, we need to speak the same language"

Anyone comparing the robust activity in the port to the structured world of education would expect the focus on IT at the Rotterdam Port Authority to be miles away from that at SURF. In contrast, Claudia de Andrade de Wit, ultimately responsible for digital infrastructure, surprisingly names many areas of focus that will seem familiar to us.

SURFsounds special: Cybersteering

SURF Sounds
In this series, we look for answers to the questions: where the Netherlands stands, what it looks like when things go wrong, how to get the right information, how to motivate people and how to make the right choices
for the future?
