Deadline for EYR-Global proposals extended to June 7, 2015!

Enlighten Your Research Global 2015 (EYR-Global) is a science support programme where research and education (R&E) network organisations join forces to help accelerate international research collaborations through improved networking, data transfers, or engineering.

AARNet and REANNZ are among the twelve national research and education networks representing the Americas, Asia-Pacific and Europe partnering to oversee and implement the EYR-Global programme.

Scientists submit research projects that could benefit from access to advanced networks and technology and consultation with expert engineers to help improve research workflows.

The selected projects then receive customised network engineering support for a year.

For the launch EYR-Global programme in 2013, four research projects in climate, genomics, and computer science received awards in the form of network resources and engineering consultations to improve the science workflows of each project, but projects from any academic discipline that is international in scope is eligible.
