Bangladesh Brain Bank Initiative
The University Grants Commission of Bangladesh (UGC), on behalf of the Ministry of Education, under Higher Education Quality Enhancement Project established Bangladesh Research Education Network (BdREN). BdREN, with its multi-gigabit capability, aims to connect all universities, research institutions, libraries, laboratories, healthcare and agricultural institutions across Bangladesh to support geographically dispersed academics, scientists, and researches with reliable access to resources.
The project is supported through an International Partnership (IP) collaboration with Kent State University, in Kent, Ohio USA and Ohio Academic Resource Network (OARNet), one of the most sophisticated super scale REN in the USA.
IP is launching The Bangladesh Brain Bank Initiative, a series of events remotely connecting professors and experts in the USA to conduct lectures, workshops and seminars in different topics intended for Bangladeshi students and professionals in the academic community.
