Bringing Networks Together: Connecting People and Technology
with Research and Education
The research and education (R&E) community is in the business of building more than one kind of network.
Putting foundational and innovative technologies to work across the globe, the Internet2 community has created a unique network infrastructure dedicated to supporting the research and scholarship missions of our members.
The Internet2 community has also built a global service framework of trust, identity and access management services where people can more easily and securely pursue the research and education solutions that will deepen their lives and widen their influence on the lives of those around them.
The capabilities these technical infrastructures make possible are increasingly dependent on the creativity and understanding of the people using them. The 2017 Internet2 Global Summit took a good look at how we can use knowledge and practice-oriented networks of people to harness and enable the power of technologies that are innovative and disruptive in order to build and sustain a collaborative community that continues to thrive—and lead.
Summit track session themes addressed both networks across several topic areas.
