From USB sticks to terabyte data transfers: how astronomers are making the universe feel smaller
“To be able to transfer the data across networks is infinitely better and the links are always improving. With the Janet Network we are on a one-gig network and from next year we’ll be upgrading that. We're going to have better and better bandwidth, and we wouldn't be able to do these transfers without it.”
Ciaran Magee, ICT manager, at Armagh Observatory and Planetarium
Events local to you
We deliver a wide range of events throughout the year, focused on specific topics, services and projects, and open to any of our members.
Connect More is our UK-wide summer events series, providing practitioners in further education (FE) and higher education (HE) with the opportunity to:
- Share expertise and insights
- Benefit from peer-to-peer learning
- Better understand how we can help you and your sector
Our forums help to ensure we understand your needs and deliver you a valuable service.
Every year we formally consult with our members in FE and HE. We aim to update you on our activities and ensure we continue to deliver world-class services that meet your needs, including your local and national priorities.
Our stakeholder forum, for FE and HE leaders, coincides with Digifest each year. It offers members an opportunity to engage with us and our board to help shape our strategy and priorities, as well as our national and regional activities.
