Background to Research and Education Networks

As research plays a vital role in the development and adoption of new technologies and development around the world, it has become imperative to align institutions of higher learning in Nigeria with the world. There is therefore the need to rally support to encourage further investment in research and development; we are also focused at getting the education community interested in using ICTs as tools for research, teaching and learning.


Based on all these, this year, the 3rd Annual Education Network Conference (EduNet2012) will look at and address the Research and Education networks (RENs) in Nigeria.


Research and Education Network (RENs) are special Internet Service Provider that connects research institutions, libraries, Universities and other higher institutions of learning. This special network facilitates the exchange and sharing of information within the connected institutions and makes for great research. They also enable other services like e-learning, Data management, Content development, Cloud Computing, Internet protocol services, and further technology development.


The conference will look at How are they formed; who are the major players and stakeholders; what are the benefits of such networks; what are the opportunities in RENs; their challenges and the future of these research and Education Networks in our education institutions and also provide the way forward for RENs
