Our Collaboration

The Knowledge Exchange (KE) partners are five key national organisations within Europe tasked with developing infrastructure and services to enable the use of digital technologies to improve higher education and research: CSC in Finland, DEFF in Denmark, DFG in Germany, Jisc in the UK and SURF in the Netherlands.

Our five partners share a clear vision that scholarship should be open. Through Knowledge Exchange we are working together to support the development of digital infrastructure to enable open scholarship. We are raising our collective voice to inform national and international policies and promote common approaches, so that it becomes easier for scholarship to cross national boundaries.

We share our knowledge, experiences and resources.
