The Dutch National e-Infrastructure for Research (DNI) was reorganised in 2013 in order to increase
the integration between the infrastructure platforms offered. The SURF Cooperative was
charged with leadership of this integrated ecosystem. Since then, there has been much progress
and activity towards increased utility, ubiquity, and ease-of-use of the DNI. Significant effort has
also been expended in the area of user support and outreach, national alignment between several
data repositories, and innovation of the infrastructure. eScience research and engineering,
best practices and policies regarding data stewardship and software sustainability have been addressed
by the Netherlands eScience Center which is closely associated with the DNI. This paper
will cover these topics, as well as outline the current challenges faced in improving the reach
and quality of the infrastructure, as well the DNI’s position in the international e-infrastructure
