Connectivity to RedCLARA

In order to get connected to RedCLARA, the scientific, academic and/or research institutions interested must be part of and be connected to the National Research and Education Network (NREN) in their country of origin. RedCLARA can only be accessed through the connection to such networks. These networks, in turn, must be members of RedCLARA, and to do so they must accredit their existence, be a non-profit institution or corporation and sing CLARA’s statutes. Only one NREN per country can be a RedCLARA member and therefore get connection to the network (it is worth mentioning that since the creation of RedCLARA nearly a dozen national networks have been created across the region).

There are four ways to become a member of RedCLARA and through the following links we invite you to learn about each one of them: Full Associates (Members), Regional Associates, Peer Associates and Entreprenurial Associates.
