Future users design seamless network connectivity and apps

SURFnet intends to implement seamless network connectivity at virtually every location in The Netherlands, for its users, whether they are connected to the fixed network or to a wireless network infrastructure. The ambition is to allow students, teachers and researchers to work together independent from their location, time of day or device used. In doing so, the Dutch research and higher education environment creates an attractive proposition for digital collaboration of researchers, knowledge workers and students from home and abroad. Involvement of future users and stakeholders is key, while the solutions developed should fit whishes and needs within the Dutch research and education community. Instruments to achieve this involvement were pilots, community building, training and a contest to stimulate usage and development of apps.
