Another AfricaConnect2 milestone achieved: Morocco re-connected

Earlier this month the Arab States Research and Education Network (ASREN) and Centre National pour la Recherche Scientifique et Technique (CNRST) have signed an agreement under which ASREN will provide a 1 Gbps connection between the Moroccan National Research and Education Network (MARWAN) and the pan-European GÉANT network through ASREN’s Point of Presence (PoP) in London.

The agreement marks Morocco’s re-joining the international R&E networking community with the support of the EU-funded AfricaConnect2 project. The connectivity is set to accelerate collaborative research and education with peers in Europe and other parts of the world, particularly in areas of relevance to the Mediterranean region, such as climate research, water management and sustainable use of land resources.
