AARNet is Australia’s national research and education (R&E) network and one of more than 120 interconnected R&E networks in the world. R&E networking infrastructure traverses the globe, enabling access to content and resources, connecting people, delivering new experiences, fostering collaboration and cultivating interdisciplinary communities striving to make a difference.

The In The Field blog, developed by AARNet and launched as a Global NREN PR Network initiative, embodies that very spirit, bringing the R&E network community together in a global collaboration with users and beneficiaries to showcase and share inspiring stories and achievements.

Stories on the blog cover six continents and illustrate how R&E networks are utilised to solve problems and make a difference to the everyday lives of people.

Read about people and projects involved in decoding the diversity of rice to improve yields for farmers in Asia, telemedicine changing the reality of health in Brazil, transitioning to digital exams in Norway and France, tracking Kyrgyzstan’s melting glaciers, supercomputing for archaeology in Denmark, and connecting students to scientists in the jungles of Panama and remote robot museum tours in Australia.

This blog is a truly global collaboration and welcomes contributions from all research and education networks in the world.
