Why is DataHub using SRAM?

The main reason is to enable collaboration with external users (non-UM/MUMC+). With SRAM it will be easier, faster and safer to collaborate with researchers around the world. Also, SRAM allows data stewards to control the collaboration memberships and manage permissions on data stored at DataHub.

How can I get access to a collaboration?

You can contact the data steward of this collaboration.

Or use the self-invite link (you can find the available list at the bottom of this page).
If it is the first time, go through the sign-up flow and then wait to be accepted by the data steward.

Where do I find more instructions for the sign-up flow?

You can best read the manual or contact your data steward.

How do I invite a colleague/researcher/collaborator?

Send the self-invite link or contact your data steward.

How do I know the invitation link is secure?

Please check that the "Join them now" link is starting with https://sram.surf.nl/invitations/accept/... 
As a general recommendation when entering your UM or MUMC+ username and password, it is always good to check that you are on the page starting with https://login.maastrichtuniversity.nl/adfs... or https://auth.mumc.nl/adfs...
