The Netherlands eScience Center is the Dutch national center of excellence for the development and application of research software to advance academic research.
We are convinced that research in every academic discipline can be improved by taking advantage of available digital technology. We take a multidisciplinary approach,
combining our deep knowledge of both academic research and software development to help define and solve research challenges.
We share our ideas and the tools we develop. Together with a wide range of partner organizations, we advance not just our research projects, but the state of academic
research in general.
In 2015 we developed our strategy for the coming years, which you can download here: Netherlands eScience Center Strategy 2015-2020.
The eScience Center is a joint initiative of the Dutch national research council (NWO) and the Dutch organisation for ICT in education and research (SURF).
