During 04:11 minutes and with simple, entertaining and easy to understand illustrations, the material explains what are the inter-federations, how do they operate and the benefits they offer to the academic and research communities.
"How do users access all the services they need? How do universities, museums, schools, research centers, teaching hospitals and other research and education institutions benefit from their users coming together with more services? And how do the services reach local or global customers? With the inter-federation everybody wins, here's how it works."
About eduGAIN: The eduGAIN service enables the secure exchange of identity data between academic and research institutions in Europe. Thus, a pan-European identity federation is developed, where a user can access any service offered through eduGAIN using the credentials of their home institution.
