Support4research

The goal of Support4research is improving the efficacy of SURF support in meeting the research needs of education and research institutions. This is intended to improve the ICT services provided to researchers. After all, a high-quality and low-threshold infrastructure is a necessary precondition for conducting research at the highest level.

Research support

As a research supporter, you contribute to the ICT support of the researchers at your education or research institution. In your capacity as ICT manager, library staff member, information manager or research data officer—to name a few examples—you provide researchers with needed advice and support. Or you are actively involved in this process within your own department. Support4research aims to enhance the ability of SURF services to provide support tailored to researchers at universities, university medical centres, universities of applied sciences and research institutions. To that end the project team is exchanging knowledge with, and between, these institutions (for example: Report Research support in the Netherlands: current situation) and the organisation of the Masterclass Research Support.

Integrating research services

Are you interested in integrating SURF's range of services into those offered by your institution? We can provide extensive technical specifications of our services for researchers. This includes computational power, the exchange and storage of research data, possibilities for remote collaboration and visualisation. Simply email us a request for these technical specs.

Training courses

Are you interested in expanding and adding depth to your knowledge of the nationwide e-infrastructure? We regularly organise hands-on systems training courses at our offices in Utrecht and Amsterdam or in situ at your institution. See our overview of the training courses available to learn more. Once or twice a year SURF organises a Research Boot Camp, a full day of hands-on ICT training courses.
