11 May 2021 – This inaugural roadshow seeks to engage the Research and Education community as well as share case studies of how connecting to SingAREN Open Exchange has benefitted various IHLs. SLIX 2.0 has been elevated to a component of National Research Infrastructure. With this additional responsibility, we would like to seek inputs from the Research and Education community how SingAREN can enhance value to IHL/RIC institutional members in terms of technology network infrastructure, value-added services and awareness building in the next 1-5 years. This roadshow also presents an excellent opportunity for network staff, academics and scientists to collaborate.
