In this section we have collated a variety of resources that outline some of the main ingredients for a successful and sustainable NREN. These are captured in the navigation menu on the left. A brief outline and explanatory notes are provided below.
The successful NREN
In the first section, we have included an overview of what a successful NREN is and the fine balance between financial security, government support and other factors to achieve sustainability. We introduce the concept of "sweet spot" as the ideal place an NREN should strive for to reach optimal success.
Guidelines for new and emerging NRENs
In this section we have collected several published cases to serve as examples and guidelines for new and emerging NRENs.
Examples on how to achieve sustainability
We have also selected a number of NRENs that have succeeded in moving towards the "sweet spot" as introduced above. These examples are presented as showcases.
