R & E Networks: Growth and Sustainability Through Innovation
Time 10/03/12 01:15PM-02:30PM
The environment in which R&E networks operate is changing very rapidly given advances in technology, big data requirements, shifts in state and national policies, changes to national broadband policy and economic constraints.
Despite the changing landscape, R&E networking organizations continue to be vibrant, innovative organizations serving research and higher education as well as an expanding set of community anchor institutions.
A panel of entrepreneurial leaders from the Quilt membership will lead an insightful and informative discussion on how they are adapting to these changes through the implementation of new technology, resourceful service and delivery models, strong communities of practices, refined communication
strategies, and a growing number of collaborations and shared services with their peers.
