  1. The ALICE project was set up in 2003 to develop an IP research network infrastructure within the Latin American region and towards Europe. It addressed the infrastructure objectives of the European Commission’s @LIS programme, which aimed to promote the Information Society and fight the digital divide throughout Latin America.
Achievements Owing to its success, the ALICE project was extended until March 2008 from its original end date of May 2006. Since then the countries participating in CLARA have been responsible for the sustainability of the organisation and the regional Latin American infrastructure. Connectivity to Europe and to other world regions has been sustained in 2008 through cost-sharing between the respective partners.
(Co-)Funding The European Commission actively supported ALICE and provided co-funding to the project of EUR10 million. This constituted 80% of the project’s funding, with the remainder being provided by the project partners.
Partners The ALICE project has 4 European and 18 Latin American national research and education network (NREN) partners. In addition, CLARA (Cooperación Latino Americana de Redes Avanzadas) is a partner in the project, and is responsible for carrying out technical management of the RedCLARA network.
