The NREN community is actively working on developing and improving their support to the educational institutions. With specialised topics we would like to discuss possibilities for future collaborations, challenges and good practices. The workshop is intended to be mainly discussion based around key topics of interest. The discussion would be facilitated by a group of NRENs (including Jisc, SURFNet, UNIT, SUNET, CARNET...etc). Current topics include: joint procurement for LMS, Digital Learning Environment, eduID - MyAcademicID, learning analytics, open educational resources...etc)

In the beginning of 2019 a Europe wide survey was conducted by GÉANT to map the existing activities of NRENs to support their educational institutions beyond connectivity (e.g. innovative projects and existing services for education) and also to explore their interest in this area. You will hear about the results of this mapping exercise.

During the workshop, the NRENs explore opportunities to collaborate. The aim of the workshop is to identify three promising topics, and to define a first draft for a collaborative project. Projects can be aimed at knowledge-sharing, developing services, joined procurement, etc. Each project identifies one NREN that will be in the lead of this project.
