SURF Research and Innovation Event 2013

Researchers present striking practical examples of the innovative and creative use of ICT at the SURF Research and Innovation Event on 28 February 2013.

Scientific research in the 21st century is inconceivable without ICT resources and methods. For example the Higgs particle would never have been found without ICT. Scientists show how multidisciplinary and data intensive research is assisted and strengthened by and with ICT. The research results can lead to new insights and pioneering research questions.

For who?

The SURF Research and Innovation Event 2013 invites researchers and those supporting them to come and be inspired by research that utilises innovative and creative ICT solutions. The event will display a wide range of best practices taken from a variety of scientific disciplines.


The programme comprises more than 20 parallel sessions, with practical examples, and two keynote speakers. The sessions will be organised around the following themes:

•           Big Data & eScience

•           Collaboration & Polydisciplinarity

•           Making Connections

•           Citizen Science & Social Media

The language for the event will be English. Registration is possible from 20 December 2012 throug The SURF Research and Innovation Event 2013 (SRIE13) is being organised by SURF, SURFnet, SARA (from 1 January 2013: SURFsara) and the Netherlands eScience Center (NLeSC).
