How to log in to SODHA

Logging in with your e-mail address (‘institutional account’)

If you work in a Belgian higher education institution, then you can probably log in to SODHA with your e-mail address and the associated password. All Belgian universities and several Belgian applied science institutions (hautes ├ęcoles / hogescholen / Hochschulen) and federal research centers are members of the Belnet R&E Federation, which means their personnel can log in on platforms like SODHA with their professional e-mail address (their ‘institutional account’).
