LAUREN envisions a peaceful future through international scientific collaboration. The foundation’s primary goal is to unite researchers and facilitate the exchange of ideas through research and education networking. As a forum for stewards of network connections, LAUREN serves as a nucleus around which a rapidly expanding community of researchers revolves. Alone, an institution’s potential for achieving significant discoveries is limited by physical and intellectual resources. LAUREN’s networks facilitate sharing of high-performance computing infrastructure and open doors to the exchange of ideas. LAUREN and its members unite the Americas with technology to spread peace and prosperity through societal empowerment rising from the advancement of science and education.

LAUREN’s members believe that an investment in research and education is ultimately an investment in the peace, prosperity and unity of nations.
