Marketing Research and Education Networks Services




Regional and National Research and Education Networks continue to come up with innovative solutions for their member institutions to promote the usage of ICT, the sharing of knowledge and promotion of collaboration. However, in some cases, prospective institutions, organisations and end-users  that can benefit from these solutions and services are not aware of the existence of these solutions and services thereby missing out on the benefits of such services.
