Belnet R&E Federation
Single sign-on for a wide range of services
eduGAIN: A range of international services
Belnet is a member of eduGAIN, the transcontinental interfederation project developed by Géant (Pan-European Data Network For Research And Education). If you are a member of the Belnet R&E Federation, you can integrate eduGAIN and make use of the various services available in other federations throughout the whole world.
“eduGAIN is a huge step forwards in the area of user-friendliness. But also on the administrative-technical level we can easily make use of existing agreements for publishers already in the Belnet and/or eduGAIN portfolio. This saves us a lot of time. At the moment I think we are able to offer more than 65% of our e-sources via Belnet and eduGAIN. And this figure will increase even further.”

- Simplified registration
The Belnet R&E Federation makes it possible for your organisation to simplify its administration. You are responsible only for the accounts of the users of your organisation. Plus, your users need only to register once, with your own organisation.
- Unique login
Each user receives a unique login from his or her organization. This login offers quick and easy access to the different web applications provided. Thus, users no longer need to remember the different user names and passwords for all the services they wish to use.
- High availability
Users can make use of the services at their organisation, but also at home or when visiting another organisation.
- Better and more efficient service
Thanks to the Belnet R&E Federation, your organisation can reach a larger academic audience with its services. Moreover, students and employees have access to more online services.
