Would your research benefit from international collaboration and the sharing of large amounts of data? Then we have good news, because the successful competition for researchers “Enlighten Your Research” in the Netherlands now becomes International!
Modern science is generating large amounts of data and timely data transfers are a crucial aspect for the emerging international scientific collaborations. High-speed networks are an important enabler for the sharing of these large amounts of data. In many cases, researchers are unaware of the possibilities of such high-speed networks, offered by their National Research and Education Networks (NREN’s). In order to help researchers with their international collaborations and to further promote the benefits of international-scale networking to researchers, five leading NRENs are working together to create an exciting opportunity for the research communities.
The Enlighten Your Research Global (EYR-Global) program is an international competition that invites researchers and their collaborators to submit proposals that highlight how access to world-class research networks would significantly improve their research and discovery process.
