The higher education community has a long-standing history of pioneering disruptive and breakthrough technologies in pursuit of scientific research and discoveries for the next generation of teaching and learning.


2016 marks the 20th anniversary of the founding of Internet2 and the 2016 Global Summit is an opportune time to showcase the Internet2 community’s rich history and bright future—focused on the transformation of research and education in the next 20 years and beyond.


Since its inception, Internet2 has connected people, networks, technologies, and solutions across the research and education (R&E) ecosystem. Working together, the Internet2 community continues to transform and elevate the development of revolutionary innovations in network and infrastructure technologies—from building the world’s fastest network, to expanding to meet global needs, to growing an extensive portfolio of end-to-end global network services, cloud services, and trust and identity capabilities—for the benefit of educators around the nation and the globe.


The theme for the 2016 Global Summit in Chicago—site of the first official meeting that eventually led to the formation of Internet2—will focus on honoring the members who have shaped and developed Internet2 over the past 20 years, and showcasing visionaries whose work and strategies will shape the next 20 years for Internet2 and the entire R&E community. The Summit will feature keynote addresses from top R&E leaders, presentations from noted experts, and sessions focused on partnerships and advanced technologies—all designed to inspire and equip community leaders with vital information as they transform and elevate the academy today and beyond.
