“Enlighten Your Research Global”: How Five International Networks are Enabling International Data-Intensive Research

Time 04/08/14 08:45AM-10:00AM

Room Governor's Square 10

Session Abstract

Researchers around the world need and benefit from international collaborations on projects ranging from the humanities to the physical sciences. Many of these projects produce big data, which then needs to travel across continents to collaborators. To enable these collaborations, five national research and education networks (NRENs), lead by SURFnet, ESnet, Funet, Internet2 and Janet, joined together in 2013 to proactively find researchers who needed to connect and share data-intensive research around the world. Called Enlighten Your Research Global (EYR-Global), this program’s goal is to accelerate research and discovery for program applicants in any research domain and in any country. In addition, the NRENs are offering expert networking help to researchers so they can efficiently use the high-performance networks to meet their research needs. This session will include an introduction to the program, how the network-related outreach worked and will include a presentation of each of this year’s EYR-Global projects by associated researchers.
