SURF Research Access Management: collaborating easily and securely in research services

Research services are sometimes very specific, with a small user group per institution. Researchers often spend a lot of time arranging secure access to the systems they need for their research. A new service provides research collaborations with fast, easy, and secure access: SURF Research Access Management.

Do you also want to organise and manage easier, safer and cheaper access to research services? Then link your service to SURF Research Access Management.

How does SURF Research Access Management work?

  • Any Dutch institution can use SURF Research Access Management as a service or link a research service to it.
  • You can decide for yourself which of your institution may create research collaborations or "Collaborative Organisations" (COs). SURFconext Authorisation Rules can also be used to restrict access to SURF Research Access Management.
  • You can assign one or more CO admins to a CO. A CO addressee links the services that the research collaboration needs. Would you like to use a service that is not yet linked to SURF Research Access Management? If so, please contact us. We are happy to help!
  • All services linked? The CO-Admin now invites other collaborative members, after which SURF Research Access Management creates accounts for the services at the right time.
