 Associate Members –TransPac, Pacific Wave
 Affiliate Members –examples are PRAGMA, APBioNet, APNIC, APNG
 MoU partners – various, some also covered above
 No formal arrangement – eg University of Hawaii

Maybe need more consistency in our approach

  Building on the Expertise of APAN Working
    Groups and of our Collaborating Partners
Example 7: - School on the Internet, Asia (SOI) would like to develop a medical
  education initiative – the APAN Medical Working Group has vast experience
  in developing network-enabled medical activities

At this meeting Yoo from AI3/SoI will join the Medical Working Group sessions
    and start the discussion with Prof Shimizu on the ways to move this forward

  Strengthening relationships with Applications-
    focussed partners and Cloud development
Example 8: - Discussion have commenced on the prospect of holding a co-
  joined APAN/PRAGMA meeting
PRAGMA (Pacific Rim Applications and Grid Middleware Assembly) is going
  through a transitiion of migrating from a Grid-based infrastructure to a Cloud
  environment. There is a natural synergy between APAN and PRAGMA in
  addressing the network-related issues associated with the Cloud

                     APAN 33, Chiang Mai, Thailand – 14 February 2012

  In Conclusion
 APAN has an ongoing commitment to outreach and close collaboration with
  the global REN organisations and communities
 APAN has a long tradition of encouraging science, teaching, medical and
  culture based collaborations and to societal improvement
 New opportunities are cropping up continuously, new relationships being
  forged, with new and disruptive paradigms ready to be exploited
 Now that the distraction of the incorporation of APAN is largely behind us,
  there will be an increased focus, through our membership, on strategies for
  exploiting these relationships and opportunities.
