RedCLARA is +Network +Science, and the connectivity and services that operate online over its Advanced Network infrastructure are aimed at promoting the development of Latin American scientific-academic collaboration initiatives real opportunities for researchers, scientists and academics across the region.
RedCLARA’s services are free of charge and can only be used by the members of the National Research and Education Networks (NREN) in Latin America that are connected to its network infrastructure, and by those scientists, academics and researchers who belong to an institution connected to these NRENs. Apart from this connection, the people interested in using our collaboration services have to register in RedCLARA’s Communities Portal.
