EUMED Connect 3


EUMEDCONNECT3 is an EC co-funded project providing the regional research and education network for the Eastern Mediterranean, connecting researchers, academics and students in Lebanon, Jordan and Palestine. Via direct links to the pan-European network GÉANT, EUMEDCONNECT3 connects users to their counterparts in Europe and the rest of the world, providing a gateway to global collaborative research and education.

The program funded by the EU ran from 2011-2019 with a total budget of EUR 9.3 million.

EUMEDCONNECT3 is a network of networks. It provides international connectivity between national research and education networks (NRENs) in the region. Each NREN provides connectivity to universities and research centres in its own country. EUMEDCONNECT3 connects partner NRENs across the Eastern Mediterranean to create an integrated regional research community. The current EUMEDCONNECT3 beneficary partners are Jordan, Lebanon and Palestine with ASREN acting as the regional partner organisation. Other NRENs in the Mediterranean region can collaborate with EUMEDCONNECT3 partners via their direct GÉANT links. The EUMEDCONNECT3 project is coordinated by GÉANT (formerly DANTE), a not-for-profit organisation that also operates regional networking projects in other parts of the world. Supporting GÉANT in the project are the National Research and Education Networks (NRENs) of Cyprus (CyNet), France (RENATER), Greece (GRNET), Italy (Consortium GARR) and Spain (RedIRIS).
