Network Startup Resource Center: a year in pictures

Since its founding in 1992, the UO-based Network Startup Resource Center (NSRC) center, under the direction of Steve Huter, has provided technical assistance to universities, government agencies and other organizations in developing regions of the world where inadequate connectivity poses a barrier to collaborations with U.S. scientists and educators. Last fall the center received a five-year $3.7 million award from the National Science Foundation which will allow the center to expand its activities building network expertise and capacity in developing countries with the objective of improving international science and education collaborations.

In 2014 the NSRC team participated in 63 network training and engineering assistance activities in 32 countries, which included more than 3000 network personnel and their institutions. The center created a video collage capturing some of NSRC's internet development activities around the world in 2014.
