The Common NREN Information Model and the 2014 Compendium and Questionnaire

The Common NREN Information Model (CNIM) survey is the result of a collaborative effort by APAN, ASREN, Canarie, Internet2, RedCLARA, the GÉANT Association, UbuntuNet and WACREN. The intention of the CNIM is to document the work of National Research and Education Networks (NRENs) worldwide. The Common Information Model builds on earlier Compendium work done by TERENA, RedCLARA and APAN. Latin American NRENs are requested to complete the RedCLARA survey.

Go to the new interface!

A .pdf version of the 2014 printed edition is now available!

The 2014 information is now in the format as entered by the NRENs.
The information from earlier years is still in the process of being double-checked and may be updated in certain areas with checked data in the coming period.

The new interface now allows you to download the Compendium reports from previous years and to see a number of reports, showing the situation in current and previous years. It also gives access to the individual NREN data.

Persons that submitted data for their NREN in 2014 are able to log in (via the top-right hand corner) and to see some additional features, such as the ability to highlight the data from their own NREN.

NRENs that still want to submit or change 2014 data are requested to contact the Compendium team.


Printed versions of the Compendium can be ordered from the GÉANT Association Amsterdam office and cost € 25 excluding postage and handling.

The development of the Common NREN Information Model is overseen by a panel composed of Omo Oaiya and Tiwonge Banda (Africa), Salem Alagtash (Arab region), Markus Buchhorn (Asia), Thomas Tam (Canada), Claudio Allocchio, Katrina Sataki, Mirjam Kühne, Helmut Sverenyák and Thomas Lenggenhager (Europe), and Marcela Larenas and Florencio Utreras (Latin America).

The current version of the Model is the second edition. It will evolve in future years. The panel requests and appreciates your feedback!
