Programme manager Green ICT and Sustainable Development, SURFsara
Since January 2014 I am programme manager Green ICT and Sustainable Development at SURFsara. Until then I worked for three years in the same role at SURF. From 2012-2014 I have also coordinated sustainability at the datacenter Vancis. In the past I was involved in innovation programmes on scholarly communication and Open Access at SURF and I was the founder and chair of SURFdirect, the digital rights expertise community. I have an academic background in economics (VU Amsterdam).
