The Research and Education Network for Asia-Pacific TEIN3 (Trans-Eurasia Information Network 3) - the role of advanced research networks in food security ASEM High-Level Conference on Food Security Chiang Mai, Thailand 10 May 2011 Dr. Byung Kyu KIM TEIN* Cooperation Center
The Research and Education Network for Asia-Pacific SLIDE 2 Research Networks – providing new opportunities for global collaborations in all fields Research networking started since early 1990s to offer high speed, high quality Internet connections for research and education: National level, run by NRENs (normally publicly funded) Increasing regional level networks e.g GEANT, connecting all European Countries and major academic and research centres During last years emergence of inter-regional links for global co-operations TEIN3 provides regional and global links for Asian researchers, including for food security
The Research and Education Network for Asia-Pacific SLIDE 3 TEIN3 Introduction TEIN3 (Trans-Eurasia Information Network 3 rd Generation) provides a large-scale research and education data-communications network for the Asia-Pacific region since 2006: Extends and encourages research and education IP connectivity, linking Asia-Pacific researchers, educators and students to each other and to their counterparts in Europe. Via fast, direct links to Europes multi-gigabit GÉANT network and North America, providing the Asia-Pacific countries with a gateway for global collaboration. TEIN3 Facts Connects more than 45 million users Regional connectivity extends from four network hubs in Beijing, Singapore, Hong Kong and Mumbai to connect more than 16 countries across the Asia-Pacific region Direct links to GÉANT create a potential user base of more than 80 million Operates at speeds of up to 2.5 Gbps Currently managed by not for profit research networking experts DANTE, which also manage GEANT. Aims to transfer project management to TEIN* Cooperation Center for the next phase of TEIN3
The Research and Education Network for Asia-Pacific SLIDE 4 TEIN3 Network 19 Asian partners 16 so far connected 12 receiving EC funding support 45M+ connected users 4 hubs: Mumbai, Singapore, Hong Kong, Beijing Fastest Internet links for research within Asia Fastest and highest capacity direct Internet links for research with Europe 11.4M Euro EC funding (65% co-funding) Non-commercial

The Research and Education Network for Asia-Pacific SLIDE 7 An ASEM Success Story is continued The success of TEIN2 was celebrated at the ASEM6 Summit in Finland, which marks the tenth anniversary of ASEM (Asia-Europe Meeting) co-operation, 10 Years of ASEM: Global Challenges – Joint Responses. TEIN3 provides a dedicated high-capacity Internet network for research and education communities across Asia-Pacific. TEIN3 already connects researchers and academics in Australia, China, India, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Laos, Malaysia, Nepal, Pakistan, the Philippines, Singapore, Sri Lanka, Taiwan, Thailand, and Vietnam. Bangladesh, Bhutan and Cambodia are in the process of getting connected, bringing the total number of partners involved in TEIN3 to 19. Collaboration between Europe and Asia is increasingly critical to solving global issues, such as climate change and health threats such as avian influenza and HIV/AIDS. TEIN2 is bridging the digital divide within Asia-Pacific, and it is already delivering opportunities and benefits to the citizens of both regions. We expect this success to continue as it expands. ASEM3 Summit (Seoul, 2000) endorsed TEIN as one of the new 16 ASEM Initiatives upon the co-proposal by Korea, Singapore and European Commission (EC) Under the theme of Partnership for Prosperity and Stability in the New Millennium
The Research and Education Network for Asia-Pacific SLIDE 8 ASEM8 Endorsement (October 2010) - TEIN4 and TEIN* Cooperation Center - ASEM8 Chairs Statement : (http://www.asem8.be/asem-8-chairs-statement-and-brussels-declaration)http://www.asem8.be/asem-8-chairs-statement-and-brussels-declaration (page 18) 79. Leaders recognized the important role played by the Trans-Eurasian Information Network (TEIN) project in increasing direct internet connectivity among research and education in Asia and between Asia and Europe. They welcomed the planned launch of its 4th phase and the establishment of a Cooperation Center hosted by the Republic of Korea with financial contributions from participating ASEM partners.

The Research and Education Network for Asia-Pacific SLIDE 12 Data Intensive Collaborative Crop Research: New Rice Varieties Work on genes done at the International Rice Institute (IRRI) in the Philippines International collaboration to develop resilient, climate-proof crop varieties. Marker assisted selection used to develop water tolerant enhanced rice. Applied DNA-sequencing to the genomes of different rice varieties Vast genomics datasets created, analysed, and exchanged. High-resolution GIS data for Vegetation analysis, Yield forecast, sustainable land, water management Over 60% of the population in Cambodia rely on agriculture for their livelihoods and rice is principal crop. NRENs &TEIN3 contribute to food security.
