Powerful network supports new ways of exhibiting and preserving digital media

AARNet’s high-performing low-latency network underpins exhibitions and public programs and collaborations hat are driving innovations in media, technology and user experience for museums.

Optical fibre: a new way of monitoring earthquakes

A huge network of optical fibre runs underground across Australia, delivering the internet on light pulses. Optical fibre is very sensitive to vibration, making it an option for recording the Earth’s tremors.

Applying virtual reality technology to improve body image

Researchers in the BODYinTRANSIT project are studying how Body Transformation Experiences (BTE), or perceptual illusions of body change, can be engineered, to create the illusion of being something different than what they are in reality.

Connecting researchers to the supercomputers at the cornerstone of Australian researchers

AARNet’s partnership with supercomputing centres, universities and research institutes allow researchers to connect to some of the fastest supercomputers in Australia and undertake globally competitive research.

Empowerment through e-learning

Within six weeks after the introduction of COVID-19 lockdowns in March 2020, university education in Sri Lanka returned in a digital format.

Furthering international research collaboration through competition

NRENs supported the Data Mover Challenge 2021, an annual international competition that brings together experts from industry and academia and tests their software and solutions for transferring huge amounts of research data.

Nepal’s oldest science campuses go online

Since the Tri-Chandra College in Kathmandu, Nepal, introduced remote education in response to the national COVID-19 lockdown in spring 2020, e-learning has spread rapidly to other institutions

On track for faster railways in Sri Lanka

Digital technologies underpinned by LEARN enabled PhD students to continue to participate in a railroad research project during COVID-19.

Sri Lanka: digital civil engineering field camp

An annual field camp is a cornerstone in the education of civil engineers in Sri Lanka. With assistance from the national research and education network (NREN) the camp was converted to a digital format during COVID.

Researchers put Einstein’s theory to the test

A research team used telescopes around the world, including CSIRO’s Parkes radio telescope – Murriyang, to complete the most challenging tests yet of Einstein’s general theory of relativity, and found it holds true.

Digital classes help Thailand cope with COVID

Efforts to advance distance learning in Thailand got off to a jump start, as the COVID-19 pandemic hit by spring 2020 thanks to a collaboration to deploy Zoom.

Simulating atoms for green energy

To help Australia transition to a lower emissions economy, researchers at Griffith University are using the Pawsey Supercomputing Centre and AARNet to explore new materials for more efficient green energy production.
