SUNET started in the 1980s as a research project for Swedish computer scientists, and paved the way for the Internet in Sweden.
SUNET is governed by a board appointed by the Swedish Research Council. In addition to the board, there is also a technical reference group, as well as people working at the participating universities.

SUNET's aim is to provide Swedish universities and colleges with access to well-developed and effective national and international data communication and related services that meet their needs, whatever their geographical location.
