Jisc are a membership organisation, providing digital solutions for UK education and research institutions. Their vision is for the UK to be the most digitally-advanced higher education, further education and research nation in the world. In January 2019, Jisc merged with Eduserv to form a unique powerhouse of world-leading expertise, providing technology support to more than 20 million users in the UK and internationally.
Their support to the UK education and research sector encompasses the provision of shared digital infrastructure and services across UK universities and colleges, as well as offering trusted advice on digital technology. Jisc help the sector save time and money by negotiating deals with IT vendors and commercial publishers at a crucial time for the education and research sectors.
