A PLACE TO SHARE AND CREATE KNOWLEDGE
The GARR User Conference brings together the Italian Research and Education Network users and technical operators, with the aim to share experiences and ideas about the use of the network as a cross-disciplinary and cross-context tool for research, education and culture.
Through the network, different communities can: meet and establish truly interdisciplinary collaborations, find and share services and data, exploit in their discipline methods and ideas originally intended for other fields of application, and give birth to diverse creations as scientific experiments, virtual exhibitions, live performances, etc. Within this rich and open space, new competences are developed, which helps bridging the many-fold digital divide still existing in Italy and elsewhere.
The conference will showcase success stories and open questions, as well as offer thoughts on those strategies able to transform research initiatives into great innovation on a larger scale, thus actually contributing to the Country’s development.
