SURF participates in various Dutch platforms, research projects and partnerships in the field of IT. Nationally and internationally. One of SURF's objectives in this regard is to encourage the development of innovative IT services that benefit Dutch researchers.
To enable global cooperation, we are active internationally within relevant education and research networks.
The 4-year Acceleration Plan for Educational Innovation with IT enables universities of applied sciences to take substantial steps in the field of digitisation. Within their own institution and together with other universities and colleges of higher education. The acceleration plan is an initiative of the Association of Universities, the Association of Universities of Applied Sciences and SURF.
Netherlands eScience Center
The Netherlands eScience Center is the national knowledge centre for the development and application of research software to advance scientific research. The Netherlands eScience Center is a collaboration between SURF and NWO.
The Pica Foundation promotes and stimulates scientific and public information services in the Netherlands. It does so by subsidising projects and activities that transcend the interests of individual libraries and promote cooperation between them. These projects are intended to strengthen the role of the library in the information chain.
