When (re)using texts and images for educational purposes, it is important to take into account the copyrights attached to the material. For many years, Dutch universities have had agreements on this subject with the UvO Foundation, which represents the publishers, which are laid down in the ‘Easy Access Agreement’ .

UNL and UvO Foundation have now reached a new agreement on this for the next three years.

Over the next three years, universities will work on a new model for the future, which will be charged for actual use. In this, the development of the CopyRIGHT tool (an initiative of UNL, Surf and the universities) will play an important supporting role.
