Innovation project - The SURFnet Network Dashboard will give users an overview of all SURFnet network services, as well as graphs showing traffic statistics of the institution's own fixed network service usage.
Innovation project - The UMCs are collaborating with SURF in the field of ICT architecture. The 8 UMCs have been collaborating in the ICT field for some time already and have specified a shared reference architecture. They have asked SURF to assume control of the services mentioned in the reference architecture.
Innovation project - Institutions aim to offer personalised, flexible education that meets the individual needs of students. In its project titled 'Testbed for innovative ICT applications', SURFnet is examining the potential benefits of new ICT technologies and applications in education.
Innovation project - SURFnet is investigating the possibilities of an E-LAN (Ethernet Local Area Network) within the SURFnet network. An E-LAN is a virtual private LAN. E-LANs are useful for connecting several locations. In the fall of 2015, an E-LAN will become available for several pilot projects.
Innovation project - Within the SURF cloud project Web hosting, 5 Dutch higher education and research institutions are working together with SURF to develop a generic web-hosting service. The goal is to offer end users a reliable web environment in the cloud via SURF.
Innovation project - Within the KUBUS project, SURF and six universities of applied sciences are working together on Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS). The goal of the project is to create a common platform that institutions can use to share ICT facilities with each other.
Innovation project - Over the next four years, SURFnet will be working on Project SURFnet8, the goal of which is to further develop the fixed section of the national education and research network. The infrastructure consists of the optical network, the Carrier Ethernet network, the IP network and the related network-management system.
Innovation project - Meeting the need for a reliable network requires continuous optimisation of the network infrastructure. SURFnet is working on stable and reliable network connectivity with a large capacity and intelligent technologies in various projects within the ‘The open, programmable network’ programme.
Innovation project - The Community Management project is all about coordination between stakeholders and partner organisations on current issues within education and ICT, and how SURFnet can support the institutions with regard to these issues. Furthermore attention will paid to knowledge sharing and learning from each other.
Innovation project - SURFnet is an active participant in the European GÉANT research network. The GN4 development project aims to ensure high-quality network services and user facilities as part of GÉANT. SURFnet is helping to manage the mobile and cloud aspects of the project.
Innovation project - Learning analytics is the collection, analysis and reporting of data about students and their environment, for the purposes of understanding and improving education and the environment in which it occurs. This field would seem to hold opportunities for improvements to education.
Innovation project - Digital testing enables you to enhance the quality of learning and testing in education. Moreover digital testing has a seemingly positive effect on learning achievements, according to the SURF Testing and Test-Driven Learning programme. Many higher education institutions have the same questions about digital testing. We answer them on this page.
Innovation project - The objective of the ‘Exchange between test systems' incentive scheme is to: gain insight into how test items and data might be exchanged between different test systems, and come up with technical solutions. This would simplify and clarify the use of collective digital test content and the exchange of test data.
Innovation project - Open and online education is generating increasing interest. The rise of massive open online courses (MOOCs) has accelerated the pace of developments in this area and placed it high up on the agenda of the Dutch higher education sector. SURFnet is actively promoting the development of open and online education.
Innovation project - The government, the business sector and knowledge institutes are working together on a number of ICT Breakthrough Projects. These projects make new ICT technologies accessible to businesses in 9 promising sectors (priority sectors) within the Dutch economy. SURFsara is collaborating on a number of these Breakthrough Projects.
