ASREN

The Arab States Research and Education Network (ASREN) was launched in 2010 under the auspices of the League of Arab States and the UN Global Alliance for ICT and Development (GAID) to connect NRENs across the Arab region. Building on the EUMEDCONNECT project and network, ASREN sets out to widen its geographical footprint and to create a pan-Arab R&E network.

This strategic step is expected to lead to long-term sustainability of e-Infrastructures in the Mediterranean and the neighbouring Gulf region, potentially serving a population of over 250 million people and ensuring that researchers and academics in the region can continue to participate in world-class research and education activities.
