Tracks melting glaciers
CAREN allows Kyrgyzstan’s Central Asian Institute of Applied Geosciences (CAIAG) to share monitoring data with European partners to mitigate flood risks for people living downstream.
CAREN allows medical doctors in multiple locations to share diagnoses and best practice via high-quality, real-time video for better patient care across Central Asia.
Safeguards World Heritage
CAREN helps protect precious World Heritage sites along the ancient Silk Road by enabling video links between archaeologists and historians, and by supporting UNESCO’s plans for a virtual museum and remote site monitoring.
Tackles natural disasters
CAREN enables geoscientists across Central Asia to exchange seismic data with European colleagues to assess and mitigate the risk of earthquakes and other natural hazards.
Delivers green energy
CAREN helps develop a vibrant solar industry in Turkmenistan by supporting remote training of local engineers and real-time transmission of research data to optimise solar cell performance.
Protects the earth
CAREN enables the Institute of Astrophysics in Dushanbe, Tajikistan, to join in data-intensive global scientific efforts to identify, study and monitor asteroids that pose a threat to the Earth.
Taps Central Asia's water tower
Hyrdo-meterological monitoring data collated via satellite at GFZ in Germany is transmitted over the GÉANT and CAREN networks to a central database at CAIAG in Kyrgyzstan, accessible to scientists and state agencies for sustainable water management.
|Fights gastric cancer|
CAREN helps save lives by powering interactive remote training of Central Asian endoscopists on novel techniques for early gastric cancer diagnosis and treatment.
