Colaboratorio is a platform specially developed to support the work of academic and scientific communities. To this end, it offers a wide range of services that enable communities to share and promote knowledge, organize joint activities, and communicate in real time, optimizing time and efforts in a private, secure environment for its users.

Thanks to the ELCIRA and MAGIC projects, the platform evolved and took the form of a Cloud Service that can be incorporated into the portals of the National Research and Education Networks (NRENs). Colaboratorio is already used in this way by the NRENs of Mexico (CUDI), Ecuador (RedCEDIA), Colombia (RENATA) and Costa Rica (RedCONARE) in Latin America, WACREN in Central-Western Africa, MYREN in Malaysia, and the American University of Beirut (AUB); it is also in the process of adoption by Ethiopia (EtherNET) and Morocco (CNRST) networks.
