Research and education networks around the world are typically not-for-profit organisations and thrive on collaboration. This collaborative spirit is demonstrated by initiatives such as the TEIN eduroam in Asia project. The project saw several research and education networks join forces to extend the eduroam (education roaming) service to countries in Asia with limited or no access to eduroam via an innovative train-the-trainer workshop program.
The project was led by AARNet (Australia) in collaboration with KITSI + JNU (Korea), REANNZ (New Zealand), SingaREN (Singapore), and TEIN*CC, with funding provided by the European Union.
Eduroam is the secure, worldwide roaming WiFi access developed for the international research and education community. Eduroam allows any user from an eduroam participating organisation to get free and easy network access at any institution connected to eduroam using their home institution login credentials and removes the task of administering guest passwords. eduroam is now available in 101 countries and more than 12,000 venues such as universities, schools, museums, airports and more, supporting Research and Education collaboration millions of users.
