AARC Engagement

Summer 2015 - Summer 2016

The Authentication and Authorisation for Research and Collaboration (AARC) project is a two year project, starting in May 2015, to “develop an integrated cross-discipline AAI framework, built on production and existing federated access services (National Identity Federations and eduGAIN), increase the uptake of federated access within different research communities, pilot critical components of the proposed integrated AAI where existing production services do not address user needs, and validate the results of both the research and service activities by engaging with the research communities.” The project team consists of 20 European partners, lead by the former Trans-European Research and Education Networking Association (TERENA) now known as GÉANT.

CTSC has been established as AARC’s partner in the United States, to gather input from US cyberinfrastructure (CI) projects on AARC-lead activities, disseminate training and other AARC project outputs to US CI projects, and facilitate EU-US pilot project activities.
