Netherlands eScience Center

The Netherlands eScience Center supports and reinforces multidisciplinary and data-intensive research through creative and innovative use of ICT in all its manifestations. To stimulate this enhanced Science (eScience) NLeSC works as a network organisation focused on collaboration, with the aim to change scientific practice by making large-scale data analysis possible across multiple disciplines.

It is the goal of the Netherlands eScience Center to: 

  • Stimulate creative data-driven research across all scientific disciplines
  • Develop and apply tools to enable data-intensive scientific research
  • Promote knowledge-based collaboration between cross-disciplinary researchers

The eScience Center is a unique joint initiative by SURF and NWO and was set up in response to a decision by the Dutch Government. SURF and NWO are combining their expertise to create an effective bridge between research and ICT.
