Kennisnet (translated from Dutch as Knowledge Net, previously Kennisnet Ict op school) is a Dutch public (semi-governmental) organization dedicated to ICT-innovation for primary and secondary education and vocational training. Kennisnet provides educational content and information to teachers, pupils and parents. Kennisnet also stimulates the use of information technology in educational processes by providing technical and practical support for several innovative educational aids. The Davindi search engine is used to search for information in the Kennisnet database.[1]

Kennisnet provided hosting and bandwidth for fifty Wikimedia servers from June 2005[2] to 2009,[3] located at SARA in the Science Park Amsterdam.
