Research Abstract

This panel will explore how New Jersey institutions are supporting education and research through advanced cyberinfrastructure and cloud computing, impacting workforce and economic development, and helping to drive innovation and discovery. The significance of a top-tier state-wide network providing connectivity to the national and global research infrastructure, and the role of collaborations facilitated by organizations such as the Eastern Regional Network (ERN) for enabling resource sharing to advance research and education will be discussed.
