About the CANFAR Project


CANARIE’s Network-Enabled Platform (NEP) Program

CANARIE’s flagship Network-Enabled Platform (NEP) Program funds the development of tools and software that help researchers, in a wide range of disciplines, to fully exploit and share the massive amount of data and research that flow along the CANARIE Network. Initial CANFAR development was undertaken with $2.3 million of funding under this program.

CANFAR Development Post NEP

Development and implementation of CANFAR infrastructure have continued since the completion of the CANFARIE funded NEP project in May 2010.
