The National Research and Education Networks (NREN) of Latin America, together with RedCLARA, are coordinating actions to support our member organizations and the health authorities of our countries in the fight against the Coronavirus (Covid-19). The capacity of our networks supports Universities and Research Centres that are vital in the fight against the disease, and they count on our unrestricted support in this circumstance. Check out our support initiatives and get the information you need in order to access them.

Among the measures taken jointly at regional level are:
