South eastern European research & education networking (SEEREN)

Project ID: IST-2001-38830
Funded under: FP5-IST


This document provides a brief update on the achievements of a project funded under the "Research Networking" theme of the FP5 Information Society Technologies (IST) programme. It describes the objectives, experimental work and results of the project.

The SEEREN project aims at expanding European research networking in South Eastern Europe by providing connections between the National Research and Education Networks in eligible countries (SEEREN NRENs) and GÉANT, the Pan-European Research and Education network. Its ultimate goal is to ease the �digital divide� that still separates the region from the rest of the continent. To that end, the project promotes the cooperation of scientific and educational communities of EU member states with SE European countries and provides a platform for dissemination and development of next generation Internet technologies in those states that are on course to joining the EU. The project involves the NRENs of, Albania, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (FYRoM), Greece, Hungary, Romania and Serbia & Montenegro (called regional NRENs). In addition, the pan-European Research & Academic networking bodies DANTE and TERENA contribute to the European integration and dimension of the project.
