MARWAN’s recent connection to GÉANT via a 1Gbps ASREN link marks Morocco’s re-joining the international R&E networking community with the support of the EU-funded AfricaConnect2 project.
CONNECT 30 caught up with MARWAN’s Head, Redouane Merrouch, at the Centre National pour la Recherche Scientifique and Technique (CRNST) in Rabat. As a man of the first hour of R&E networking in the Mediterranean, Redouane provided insight into the meaning of this reconnection for his country and for collaborative research in the Mediterranean – and further afield.
“It won’t always be plain sailing, but we are determined to place our researchers and students in the best position to leave a mark – both nationally and internationally”.
