The web of connectivity powering up the world's research

How do researchers, scientists and educators collaborate across the world to solve some of society’s most wicked problems? Through an amazing global network called the GREN. It’s like the internet, but different.

Web of connectivity

Ultra-high-speed national and research networks (NRENs) in over 100 countries connect thousands of universities, schools, GLAMs and research institutions around the world.

It's like the internet you know, but purpose-built for research and education. It allows researchers worldwide to connect and collaborate on urgent issues like climate change, food security and global pandemics.

This powerful web of nation-to-nation connectivity, collectively, is the Global Research and Education Network (GREN). Australia is connected to the GREN though AARNet, Australia's national research and education network.
