SURF is the collaborative organisation for IT in Dutch education and research


Driving IT innovation in education and research together

More than 100 education and research institutions in the Netherlands work together in the SURF cooperative to fully utilise the opportunities of digitalisation. Our goal: improved and more flexible education and research.

SURF agenda

  1. 21 Mar
    Utrecht University Library, Utrecht Science Park Heidelberglaan 3.

    Many areas of research deal with sensitive data that cannot be shared widely. They have to be protected due to privacy, intellectual property, or other reasons. In this event, organised by SURF and Utrecht University, we will discuss several projects, tools and techniques to work with sensitive data in research.

  2. 29 — 30 Jun

    On 30 June and 1 July 2022, catch up on current security and privacy issues in education and research. We are the guests of the RUG and the Hanze.
