Enabling better global cooperation
Asi@Connect marks the 4th phase of EU funding to the Trans-Eurasia Information Network (TEIN) programme which has successfully established a regional research and education connectivity network from scratch in 2004 and progressively expanded its geographical footprint over the years. During this new phase, greater emphasis is placed on delivering the project with increased involvement of additional partners within the Asia-Pacific R&E community.
Asi@Connect takes over the R&E backbone from TEIN4, the most recent phase in the TEIN initiative and continues to connect regional researchers with their counterparts in Europe via GÉANT, providing the Asia-Pacific countries with a gateway for global research collaboration. Asi@Connect receives €20 m in funding from the European Union up to 2021 and further funding from Asian partners.
