The CHAIN REDS Workshop on e Infrastructures for Education Research and Development successfully held in Tunis

Organised by ASREN, with the support Sigma Orionis and all project partners, the CHAIN-REDS workshop was successfully held on December 11, 2013 in Tunis, Tunisia. The event was organised under the aegis of the European Commission, in association with EUMEDCONNECT3 and in co-location with the e-AGE 2013 conference "Connect, Access, Innovate"

 

The event involved around 40 participants from the Arab region and Europe. While offering an update on the project outcomes, the workshop focused on exploring existing e-Infrastructure initiatives relevant for the Arab region and provided an overview of the current status of e-Infrastructures in ASREN countries.

The Workshop provided a forum for discussions and debates on recent developments and perspectives in the field and the following points emerged as concluding remarks:

 

• It is very impressive to see how much cooperation and collaboration can be put into work across the world, and in particular the growing number of NRENs and activities in the Arab Countries.

 

• The rapidly changing scenarios in technology and social activities have to be matched by an evolving Research and Education system based on powerful and fast evolving e-Infrastructures.

 

• The evolution, however, has to take into consideration the use of standards and interoperable solutions in order to be inclusive, allow international collaboration, and be reasonably long term sustainable.

 

CHAIN-REDS project is actively operating for coordination and harmonization of e-Infrastructures across continents and is very much interested in collaborating with institutions, organizations and other projects.

 

The event proceedings are available here.
