TransPAC5: 20 years of partnership in the Asia-Pacific region
In fall 2020, the United States’ National Science Foundation (NSF) awarded Indiana University a five-year grant of $4.75 million to support TransPAC5 and research and education collaborations between the U.S. and Asia. This initiative extends a 20+ year partnership in the Asia-Pacific region and will enhance U.S.-Asia network capacity by providing multiple high-speed circuits plus end-to-end services and shared resources to support research.
International Networks at Indiana University will co-lead the TransPAC5 expansion. Dr. Jennifer Schopf, Director of IN@IU, is the Principal Investigator on the award. Co-Principal Investigators include Hans Addleman at IU and Bu Sung "Francis" Lee at the Singapore Advanced Research and Education Network.
