Net21 at UC Berkeley

Net21 is a UC Berkeley research centered focused on the development, testing, incubation, and demonstration of applications designed specifically to take advantage of the capabilities of the next generation Internet.

It was opened in April 2002 as part of the Center for Information Technology Research in the Interest of Society (CITRIS) program with support from the State of California and non-profit consortium CommerceNet.

Located at the Center for Commercialization of ITS Technologies in Berkeley, Net21 is currently running the Next Generation Internet (NGI) Scholar program. This is a summer research program that supports undergraduate students who are developing applications utilizing emerging Internet technologies. These technologies include everything from higher bandwidth connectivity through Internet2 to new peer-to-peer techniques.
