Radboud University (RU)

The Radboud University in Nijmegen represents outstanding teaching and research in accordance with international standards. There is intensive collaboration between the RU and the Radboud University Medical Center. The University and Medical Center together have more than eighteen thousand students and about ten thousand employees.

Summary of the project

Componence worked with the RU to develop a portal infrastructure and migrated the existing student portal to this new Liferay environment. The solution went live in October 2012. All eighteen thousand RU students now make use of the portal. The number of concurrent users has doubled to five thousand. Componence and RU are now working on the development of a personnel portal.
