Enlighten Your Research Global 2015

AARNet is joining NRENs from all over the world to launch the second edition of the Enlighten Your Research Global (EYR-Global) program. This year, 12 National Research and Education Networks (NRENs) representing the Americas, Asia-Pacific, and Europe are partnering to oversee and implement this science support program.

EYR-Global is a program where research and education (R&E) network organisations come together to help accelerate international research collaborations through improved networking, data transfers, or engineering. Scientists submit research projects that could benefit from access to advanced networks and technology and consultation with expert engineers to help improve research workflows. The selected projects then receive customized network engineering support for a year.

In 2013, four research projects in climate, genomics, and computer science received awards in the form of network resources and engineering consultations so as to improve the science workflows in each project.

The call for research proposals will open on 26 April 2015. Visit the EYR Global website or attend this session on Thursday, April 30 at Internet2’s upcoming Global Summit to learn more about this innovative way NRENs are working together to support their members’ needs.
