Jisc and Eduserv to merge

The two not for profit tech organisations join forces in 2019.

Jisc is the UK’s technology solutions organisation which has a portfolio of 100+ products and services for higher and further education. Eduserv’s services include access management and licensing services for local government, public bodies, healthcare, charities and more.  The two organisations have a combined user base of 20 million+ in the UK and overseas.

"Together, Jisc and Eduserv will have greater scope to co-create innovative products and services to meet the needs and expectations of students and citizens, without duplication of effort, time and money.”

Paul Feldman Jisc’s chief executive

Jisc and Eduserv will keep their individual identities and websites after 1 January 2019.  However the plan is to bring both organisations under the Jisc brand.
