Joining the Federation is easy. The IDEM GARR AAI Service can provide you with information and assistance at every step of the Process.
All organisations connected to GARR, the Italian National Research Network (i.e. Universities and research organizations) can join the Federation as full members. In addition, third-party organizations (i.e. publishers, software /service providers etc), can join the Federation as partners in case they provide relevant contents or services to the education and research community. For both, participation is subject to the IDEM Policy Committee‘s approval
Once the signed Member Accession Form or the Memorandum of Understanding has been received, your membership application will be submitted to the IDEM Policy Committee for approval. The IDEM Federation will notify applicants about the approval or rejection of their request.
Once the member/partner application has been approved by the IDEM Policy Committee, the IDEM GARR AAI Service will be available to assist you with transitioning your services from the test environment to the production mode.
