The Up2U Consultation meeting for uptake and future planning on 9 March 2021.

The Up2U platform is a learning platform offering a community-based architecture that allows to create a tailored online learning environment for education. The Up2U platform is currently funded by the GN4-3 project, but that funding is planned to finish at the end of April. We now need your input to help to determine the future offering. 

In this consultation, we will introduce potential solutions for the continued availability of the platform, get your view on the proposed models and what would fit your needs better. Possible future models are either the creation of national instances and/or a centralised service offering provided via GÉANT.
