EYR (Enlighten Your Research) is an initiative that started in The Netherlands as a SURFnet initiative to support researchers to give a boost to their research by providing support in the use of advanced ICT facilities. In the various EYR rounds in The Netherlands researchers were asked to submit proposals for the use of high end ICT facilities that would enable them to do better research. The Dutch programs were focussed on new emerging technologies that, such as “Fixed Light Paths” (2007), Dynamic Light Paths” (2009), “Connecting e-Infrastructures (2011) and “Data analysis (2013). In 2015 there was also an EYR Global initiative . In 2016 EaP Connect organised an EYR programme as part of their EaP E-infrastructure Conference in Tblisi (October 2016).
As part of CRNC 2017 an EYR programme for CAREN members will be organised.
