CIIT 2015 - MARnet Campus Best Practice Workshop

"Campus Best Practice (CBP), part of the GÉANT project funded by the European Union, aims to address key challenges for European campus networks. The CBP Team does this by organising working groups and providing an evolving and to-the-point set of best practice documents (BPDs) for the community. Dissemination of results on a European-wide level is a key objective. The working method involves each NREN organising a number of working groups that deal with campus issues in different technical areas. Participants from universities are invited to take part in the working groups, which work to propose recommendations in best-practice documents. The working groups are led by the NREN and technical experts from universities within the country participate in the groups. Current challenges and experiences are shared and common best practices are discussed, iterated and finally agreed upon. " (For more information see:
