The Authentication and Authorisation for Research and Collaboration (AARC) initiative was first launched in May 2015 to address the increased need for federated access and for authentication and authorisation mechanisms by research and e-infrastructures.
Running for two years, AARC was funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under Grant Agreement 653965.
A second phase of the project (AARC2) started in May 2017 to continue to develop and pilot an integrated cross-discipline authentication and authorisation framework, building on existing authentication and authorisation infrastructures (AAIs).
AARC2 is funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under Grant Agreement 730941.
THE LAST MEETING EVENT
The last AARC meeting will take place on the 18th-20th of March 2019 in Abingdon, UK.
