“The ASREN initiative will connect our researchers and scholars allowing them to share knowledge and to collaborate. It is a unifying network for the Arab region, and I commend it.”
Amr Moussa
Former Secretary General of the League of Arab States
“Research today is largely driven by e-Infrastructure. With increasing complexities of scientific problems, growing support for global collaboration, and accelerating demand for high performance computing and the sharing of resources, e –Infrastructure has become a driver for innovation and a powerful instrument for advancing science and technology. The Arab e-Infrastructure promises to encourage innovation and strengthen science and technology capabilities for the whole region.”
Nahayan Mabarak Al-Nahayan
Former Minister of Higher Education and Scientific Research
United Arab Emirates
“Our efforts in the Mediterranean region and the Arab region at large have brought yesterday’s vision to reality today. e-Infrastructures are bringing real, and very practical benefits to scientific research, supporting collaboration wherever there is a mutual interest, bridging technological and scientific gaps and reducing such phenomena as brain drain. I would like to thank ASREN for its initiative to prepare the e-Infrastructure Status Report.”
