The Summary Report of e-AGE 2013 is now available for consultation. e-AGE 2013 – 3rd “International Platform on Integrating Arab e-Infrastructure in a Global Environment” - was held on December 12-13, 2014 in Tunis, Tunisia under the patronage of His Excellency the Minister of Higher and Scientific Research of Tunisia and alongside the 5th annual meeting of the Arab Organization for Quality Assurance in Education (AROQA). The event attracted more than 80 high-profile participants from over 30 countries spanning all world regions.

 

The e-AGE platform is a very important tool that supports the work of ASREN (Arab States Research and Education Network). e-AGE 2013 was planned on the basis of three main themes: Connect – Access – Innovate.

  • Connect: Facilitate connectivity through a high-speed network to allow scientists to communicate, collaborate, exchange, and run both data and computational-intensive scientific applications and services.
  • Access: Enable seamless access to data, services, applications, and resources related to science and education. e-AGE 2013 was a platform to explore access opportunities and services that could be provided to research communities in a federated context.
  • Innovate: High-speed networks and wide access represent enabling environments for students, researchers and scientists to innovate for greater competitiveness across industries towards better revenue generation through knowledge economy.

Following on the success of e-AGE in 2011 and 2012, e-AGE 2013 included events, workshops, meetings centered on the following themes:

  • The 6th Event on Euro-Mediterranean e-Infrastructure
