IU receives $9.2 million from NSF to expand global networks and research
Date:8/2/2010

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. -- Indiana University has been awarded $9.2 million from the National Science Foundation (NSF) to lead two high-speed international network services. The awards provide IU with $4.6 million to continue the TransPAC3 network connection to Asia, and an additional $4.6 million for a new connection to Europe, named ACE -- America Connects to Europe.

"Congratulations to Indiana University, the first institution to receive two awards in an IRNC competition," said William Chang, National Science Foundation IRNC (International Research Network Connections) program officer, and an Indiana University graduate. "Thanks to its leadership, scientists and educators in Asia and Europe may now connect to U.S. research and education centers, to the great benefit of people around the world, especially in less developed countries. Indiana University, positioned in the heartland of the U.S., has now earned the distinction of global center of information technology for science and education."

IU, in close cooperation with its national and international partners, will lead the implementation of these networks to connect scientists and researchers in the U.S. with their counterparts in Europe and Asia.

"These global, high-speed communications networks are absolutely critical to 21st century scientific research," said IU President Michael A. McRobbie, who was the principal investigator on the original TransPAC grant in 1998. "They make possible a level of collaboration among researchers at the world's major scientific and engineering institutions that couldn't even be imagined just 20 years ago. Indiana University has played an essential role in managing such services since 1998 when the first connection to the Asia Pacific was initiated. I am extremely proud that IU has been chosen again by the NSF to continue to play a major role in this important work. This continues to place IU right at the center of international developments in adva
