Nepal Research and Education Network (NREN) is a non-profit organization registered under Nepal Government and affiliated with Social Welfare Council. This is a consortium in the country active to build national research and education network. It facilitates dedicated advanced research and education network for the research and education communities of Nepal.
NREN was constituted by the professionals working on the theme of ICT for Development. Lack of research environment and the network in terms of resources, infrastructure and access was the key motive towards the establishment of this institution. It aims to strive towards the mitigation of research backwardness via the connection with global research and education communities.
