Research Engagement

We Connect You to Research Results

Research Engagement at Internet2 works to enhance global research computing and data capability (RCD), capacity, and resources to better support and advance research activity. We do this by providing consulting and training, facilitating a professional community to develop tools and best practices, and supporting RCD professionals as research partners.

Your Partner in Supporting Research

It just so happens we’ve been supporting collaborative research since our founding in 1996.

Internet2 helps researchers connect with a full spectrum of support services and technology. Let us help you understand and use the latest data infrastructure, cloud-based services, security, and network technologies to foster collaboration within our community. This includes offering one-on-one consultations and training to use services like the Internet2 Network, Federated Identity, Access Management, eduroam, and a variety of commercial cloud services tailored to higher education.

Our Mission

We believe researchers, regardless of domain, geography, or institution, should have access and support for the effective use of research computing and data tools, services, and resources.
