Communities

JISC encourages the development of communities in a variety of areas relating to technology, education and research. By supporting these communities JISC can keep up-to-date with important topics, encourage discussion, and supply information to relevant interest groups.
 
Some communities are facilitated by JISC or JISC-funded initiatives. In these instances participants may need to meet qualifying criteria such as addressing specific technical issues or supporting a specific programme of work.
