Every four years, the institute sets out its strategic policy aims in a Strategic Plan, mapped out in coordination with the affiliated institutions. This plan sets out the main ICT developments that will be impacting education and research over the years ahead. Our innovation programmes and projects stem from the Strategic Plan.
Strategic Plan 2015-2018
The SURF Strategic Plan 2015-2018 (PDF, 3.3 MB) was drawn up in close collaboration with the intitute member institutions and other education and research stakeholders.
