Research output: Book/ReportReportResearchpeer-review


The topic of this report is the implications of regulatory issues for the development of national research and education networks (NRENs). The topic is heavily influenced by a major revision in mid-2003 of the EU communications regulation, which is the latest since the liberalisation was first mapped out in a Green Paper in 1987. Regulatory issues may not be highest on the priority list of important questions in NREN communities since they are not often encountered in daily work. However, they constitute the environment in which NRENs develop and the present report documents that communications regulation matters a great deal to the conditions under which NRENs and GÉANT develop.
