Education is an international collaboration.

IAM Cloud not only helps schools access their resources locally, but also builds connections across institutions globally. Research is built on global cross-institute collaborations, and yet there are still a surprising number of technological barriers that allow organisations to enable secure shared access to resources for collaborating teams from other organisations. This is true globally, but especially pertinent with institutes outside of the UK and USA.

There are similar challenges with cross-institute relationships around teaching and scholarship. IAM Cloud aims to bring the world’s educational institutions together across a single unifying infrastructure that will remove the technological barriers to collaboration in teaching and research.

This is a major project, but we already have most of the technological capability to achieve it. That said, our vision requires a lot more than just technology – it requires a new philosophy, and a new generation of relationships and partnerships to grow with it. If you’re interested in learning more or taking part, get in touch!
