Belnet R&E Federation: access to a range of services

The Belnet R&E Federation brings together higher education and research institutions connected to the Belnet network on a common infrastructure to offer students and employees access to online services.

Simplified access to a multitude of online services

Does your organisation want to offer its users a multitude of community R&E services with a single login?  Do you want a reliable framework that respects confidentiality? Do you want to provide access to international services via eduGAIN?

The Belnet R&E Federation brings together all higher education and research institutions on a common infrastructure to offer them a multitude of online services.

Belnet R&E Federation, a single login for many benefits

With a single login you can use the services of other institutions, or other providers as well as Belnet services (among others, FileSender,, or eduGAIN) and become a service provider, in a secure and stable environment.

Using the single login, your students and employees benefit from simple access to the many web applications offered. From your side, your organisation can reach a wider audience.


Simplified registration 

Users only register once with your organisation instead of registering to each service they want access to. 

Exclusive access to FileSender

FileSender is a simple, fast and secure application for sending very large files of up to 200 GB.

Access to eduGAIN

Every member of the Belnet R&E Federation is automatically included in eduGAIN, the transcontinental interfederation project developed by Géant (the pan-European research and education network) to benefit from services offered in other federations around the world. And if you are a Service Provider, you can make your organisation services available to eduGAIN.

Access to the university library's electronic resources must be as simple as possible and eduGAIN is a step forward. With a single login, users can have access to all our available resources electronically, whether they log in on or off campus. This saves us a lot of time. We can currently offer more than 65% of our electronic resources through Belnet and eduGAIN. And this number keeps growing.
