Germination of NepalREN

It was 2005, a group of academicians and the professional working on the field of ICT and other development sector come to the conclusion by drawing their real life experience and the observation from the global context, ‘there is an adverse gap between researcher and research environment in Nepal’.

The gap was not significantly decreased even though a huge amount of budget had been allocated for the research and education sector by the government, non-government, private and the donor agencies. There was an urgent need to address the problem by the deployment of high speed research environment which was already practiced by the developed countries.

In this context, the idea for the establishment of NREN was realized and it was registered in 2007.
