RENU Peering Policy
Research and Education Network for Uganda [RENU] is the National Research and Education Network [NREN] for Uganda, that enhances ICT-enabled collaboration among Ugandan researchers and the higher education community by linking them to their peers and partners, nationally within Uganda, regionally within Africa and internationally to the global Research and Education (R&E) communities.
