All connected members have the advantages of our collaboration with Internet2. We are part of this consortium that consists of over 200 universities, in partnership with industry and government, to develop and deploy advanced network applications and technology. It provides a connection for educators and researchers to virtually every research network across the globe, opening the door for increased collaboration and communication.
MOREnet was one of the first state education networks to receive designation as an Internet2 Sponsored Educational Group Participant (SEGP), and we participate in Internet2’s Community Anchor Program (CAP). The CAP program helps connect teachers, libraries and community organizations to Internet2, thereby offering them educational and research opportunities previously available only to large public research institutions.
MOREnet was also instrumental in the initial development of the Internet2 K20 initiative and continues to serve in a leadership capacity on the K20 Advisory Committee. The K20 project brings people together from Internet2 member institutions, primary and secondary schools, colleges and universities, libraries, and museums on a variety of initiatives.
