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.

AARC’s Policies and Guidelines are a compilation of best practices and recommendations set up to help Research and e-Infrastructures to implement a scalable and cost-effective policy and operational framework for integrated AAI. (ie, implement the AARC BPA in a secure and GDPR compliant way).
The Policies and Guidelines provide a common background to all Research and e-Infrastructures and enhance security through sharing of common practices.
The AARC training activities comprise a set of tools, materials and courses that are delivered online or face-to-face.
Generic materials promote fundamental concepts of federated identity for a broad audience across research communities. Other training events and materials are targeted at specific audiences such as service providers or a particular research collaboration.
