Are you ready to join the Federation?

Joining the Federation is easy!

Detailed procedures and forms are available on the IDEM Federation wiki


The IDEM GARR AAI Service can provide you with information and assistance at every step of the Process

Who can join?

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.

Test environment

Organisations considering joining the IDEM Federation can freely use the Federation’s Test Environment to test their Identity Provider or Service Provider services. Access to the Test Environment is granted on request by the IDEM GARR AAI Service. To activate the service, organizations should send a request to This email address is being protected from spambots.
