Global Education - Preferred Partner

A preferred global partner

IU Bloomington will enhance its position as a preferred global partner for inter-institutional collaborations.

This aligns with IU Bloomington Bicentennial Objective Five.

Inter-institutional collaboration

Goal: Leverage technology in support of inter-institutional collaboration.

Update: IU Bloomington is investing time and resources into developing and adopting systems that would support inter-institutional collaboration.

The NSF Jetstream cloud environment supports IU’s international partnerships, collaborations, and inter-institutional granting opportunities.

Along with Northwestern University, Purdue, Rutgers, and the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, IU announced the launch and activation of OmniSOC, a specialized, sector-based cybersecurity operations center that provides trusted, rapid, actionable cyber intelligence to its members. OmniSOC at IU was named a recipient of a 2019 CSO50 Award from IDG's CSO. U.S. Congressman Don Beyer mentioned OmniSOC and the Research & Education Networking Information Sharing & Analysis Center as part of his remarks during a Committee on Science, Space & Technology hearing.

International Networks at Indiana University and the China Education and Research Network have formalized their long-standing partnership by signing an agreement on continued collaboration on supporting research and science.

IU network engineers are collaborating with Ciena, Internet2, and ESnet to power the fastest network ever built for research and education. Called the Monon400 because it operates over 400G channels, the 800-gigabits-per-second capacity high-speed network is four times faster than its predecessor, Monon100.

The Research Security Operations Center is a virtual center led by IU that brings together existing cybersecurity services from IU, Duke University, the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center, and the University of California San Diego.  ResearchSOC helps make scientific computing resilient to cyberattacks and capable of supporting trustworthy, productive research.
