How to use DeiC's services (abroad)
In connection with the Research Network, DeiC also operates a number of services. These are, for example, the internet connection eduroam, video conferencing systems, the login system WAYF and much more.
However, you do not need to be connected to the Research Network, because the services can actually be used anywhere in the world that is on the Internet. Some services are free, but for most, your institution must be connected. You can find a complete list and read more about the individual services here.
If you are affiliated with a Danish institution, but move around the world a lot, you can via the Research Network's login service, WAYF, continue to use the services exactly as if you were in Denmark. If you are not part of the teaching or research environment, but are involved in projects or research collaborations with an academic institution, this will typically be able to help provide access to the services you need.
The Research Network is for you who are a researcher, student or employed at one of the connected institutions.
If you want to know more, contact Martin Bech, head of the research network, or the generic mailbox at DeiC. We will then contact you to clarify the details.
