A Programme Manager for The Knowledge Exchange Office in Copenhagen, Denmark


The Knowledge Exchange (KE) is a challenging new way of collaborating between:

·         SURF (SURF Foundation), The Netherlands

·         DFG (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft), Germany

Knowledge Exchange (KE) is an umbrella under which the four national 
organisations work towards common infrastructure and services based on 
international standards to support the use of ICT within tertiary education and 
research and as such contribute to inform European policy. The main aim is to 
develop closer working relationships between the organisations in order to 
increase return on national investment in ICT infrastructure, services and 
projects. Through sharing of knowledge, exploring differences, collaborating 
and promoting international dialogue the vision is to create the optimal 
virtual environment for learners, teachers and researchers. 

The Knowledge Exchange cooperation started up in the second half of 2005. For 
the three first years the KE office, which acts as secretariat for the 
collaboration, will be located in Copenhagen together with DEFF, a unit of the

Exchange is English.
