Excerpted from the US Department of State press release on the Second US-India Joint Commission Meeting on Science and Technology Cooperation in Washington on June 11, 2012.
Global Ring Network for Advanced Applications Development (GLORIAD): On June 9, 2012, the first direct U.S.-India advanced science and education network began supporting enormous data flows between the United States and the science center of India in Bangalore. Funded by the U.S. National Science Foundation—and as part of a public-private partnership featuring a $6M contribution by Tata Communications and enabled by the International Centre for Theoretical Sciences (ICTS) of the Tata Institute for Fundamental Research in Bangalore—the new link is part of the NSF-funded advanced global GLORIAD network. GLORIAD is designed to support the most advanced big-data research today, as well as education and health-related research, and its Indian partners at the ICTS are also launching the first open, science-driven, science-managed network exchange in India.
