In this paper, we present the Greek School Network. This project is financed by the Second and Third Community Support
Framework of the European Union. Research and Academic Computer Technology Institute (CTI) has the responsibility for
the design, coordination and the implementation of the project. The main object of the project is the implementation of a
network infrastructure for the interconnection of school laboratories and educational administration offices and the provision
of network services in a wide range. It forms a closed educational network, which is based on the Greek educational and
research backbone network (GRNET). The Greek School Network statistics show that teachers and students have adopted the
services of GSN in their school life and learning activities.
