“Enlighten Your Research” program seeks proposals for enhanced global networking capabilities — May 29 deadline

Enlighten Your Research Global is a program organized by 13 global National Research and Education Networks (NRENs), with the goal of identifying research programs that could significantly benefit from enhanced global network connectivity. The group aims to foster international collaborations to accelerate the research and discovery process. To promote the benefits of international-scale networking to researchers, EYR Global is challenging researchers to stretch the boundaries of their science and collaborate with other countries to perform experiments enabled by the NREN’s world-class network infrastructure.

The EYR-Global program awards select projects with expert engineering support, consultation, and collaboration to guide and enhance researchers’ workflows.

The selected proposals will receive networking resources that they need for their project for one year. The EYR partner NRENs, along with any affiliate partners, will provide and develop high-quality network services for all higher education and research institutions in their respective countries.

The awarded teams may receive the following services:

  1. High-performance network infrastructures operated by the participating NRENs and their partners;
  2. Support and consultation with expert network engineers on devising the best end-to-end network connectivity plan to support the proposed research;
  3. Commitment from each participating NREN to an agreed level of network resource provisioning and ongoing support during the program’s allotted time;
  4. The required network connection will be delivered to the NREN termination point at the institution (if present). The institution is responsible for extending the connection within the institution and for the required infrastructure.

The initial application deadline is May 29. Visit the EYR Global website for more information and submission details.
