About SURFnet
SURFnet ensures that researchers, instructors, and students can work together simply and effectively with the aid of ICT. It therefore promotes, develops, and operates a trusted, connecting ICT infrastructure that facilitates optimum use of the possibilities offered by ICT. SURFnet is thus the driving force behind ICT-based innovation in higher education and research in the Netherlands.

Our mission
We are a non-profit 'task organisation' forming part of SURF, the Dutch higher education and research partnership for ICT-driven innovation.

Our mission is:
To improve higher education and research by promoting, developing, and operating a trusted, connecting ICT infrastructure that facilitates optimum use of the possibilities offered by ICT.

Our vision
Collaboration, researching and learning together, and sharing knowledge, data and tools all help determine the quality of higher education and research in the Netherlands. ICT makes a major contribution to all this.

We therefore focus on two areas:

  • a network infrastructure: a hybrid fixed-wireless network as the basis for all collaboration, providing efficient, unlimited data transport;
  • a collaboration infrastructure: a pioneering collaboration environment that seamlessly connects systems, services, tools, and people.
