GÉANT2 continues and improves both the functionality and services of the GÉANT network, i.e., solutions to support end-to-end services, Grid compliance, Quality of Service, seamless access, mobility and security
SEEREN2 creates the next generation of the southeast European segment of GÉANT2 that intends to make leading-edge technologies and services available to the entire R&E communities on the Balkans
ORIENT implements a direct connection between GÉANT2 and the Chinese research networks CERNET and CSTNET to support a wide range of scientific co-operations between Europe and China
OCCASION aims to provide connectivity to GÉANT2 from National Research and Education Networks (NRENs) of the 8 Newly Independent States of the Caucasus and Central Asia (Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan), and Afghanistan

PORTA OPTICA Study aims at stimulation and consolidation of initiatives to ensure the successful dark-fiber based research network deployment in the Eastern Europe, Baltic States and Southern Caucasus regions
AUGERACCESS using Grid concepts aims to improve the real-time access capabilities of European research groups working with the data produced by the Pierre Auger Observatory in Argentina for measuring the flux of primary cosmic rays
EXPReS aims to create a distributed large scale astronomical instrument by connecting the largest and most sensitive radio telescopes on the planet via a high speed network
Go4it aims at capitalizing on large European investments made in research infrastructures by giving the tools to all user communities to test IPv6 protocol based solutions thus increasing their level of knowledge, trust and confidence in new generation technologies
