NORDUnet welcomes Steve Cotter as the new CEO of GÉANT Association; the transition to a unified top management for the pan-European research and education networking association is a major step forward in the long process of merging TERENA and DANTE into a single organization, serving equally as the home of European R&E networking community efforts and operator of a pan-European service portfolio.
Advanced research and education networks exist to be enablers. The value of NORDUnet and the Nordic NRENs is the great education and the groundbreaking research they enable. Our users engage in exciting research projects, they produce new discoveries, they find new ways to teach. We're excited to be part of this and to enable these results. As research networks we talk a lot about our technology, our capacity, and our services. This is what we do.
Roskilde University is moving all its video productions into the Kaltura media management system from Danish NREN DeIC. This is expected to lead to increased security, stability, and control of copyright issues. DeIC delivers Kaltura as a service hosted by NORDUnet.
