Collaborative Innovation Community

Extending collaboration further
to innovate more value

In March 2015, Internet2’s new Chief Innovation Officer, Florence Hudson, asked you—our members—a very important question: Where would collaborative innovation efforts provide the most value for Internet2 members—and the world? Your answer was clear, and her initial focus was decided. Three new collaborative working groups have been created to address these important areas:

Collaborative Innovation Community image Distributed Big Data & Analytics
Scope: Enable Internet2 members to better manage distributed big data and analytics through partnerships, collaborations, shared services and leveraging of Internet2 capabilities in advanced networking, cloud services, and federated identity. See group page for more...

End-to-End Trust & Security
Scope: Develop an advanced architectural roadmap and recommended implementation approach to enable future end-to-end trust and security innovations for the R&E community. See group page for more...

Internet of Things
Scope: The IOT will incorporate many physical devices, sensors and facilities into a variety of public and private networks. This possibility presents many opportunities and challenges for our members and the world. See group page for more...

Working Group Operations

Each working group is led by Internet2 member representatives (with support from Internet2 staff), leverages member programs and resources, and encourages participation from the entire Internet2 community. Each group will make specific recommendations regarding scope, ensure economic viability and scalability, and clarify value to a significant segment of Internet2 membership.

Monthly open teleconferences will be held in various locations to develop and review draft recommendations and open source output. Special teams may be established as each group sees fit to facilitate software or service development.
