NREN Compendium

Collecting and displaying data about national research and education network organisations.

​Each year, GÉANT compiles and analyses data provided by national research and education network (NREN) organisations about their services, activities and developments. The GÉANT Compendium provides an authoritative reference source for anyone with an interest in the development of research and education networking in Europe and beyond.


NRENs are very diverse regarding their structure, funding, size and focus. The printed Compendium provides information on key areas such as legal form, users, services, traffic, budget and staffing. The online Compendium tool provides more information to authorised users who sign in using federated authentication.


Production of the GÉANT Compendium is supported financially through the GÉANT (GN4​) Project, which is funded by the European Union and Europe's national research and education networking organisations.
