SANET (Slovak Academic and Data Network) is an independent association supported by the Ministry of Education of the Slovak Republic and its members through yearly membership subscription fees. It was created through an initiative by Slovak universities, Slovak Academy of Sciences and research institutes. The first step was to create the SANET association with the goal of building and operating a computer network that would connect all academic and research institutions in Slovakia with a connection to international computer networks. SANET provides its members with standard internet services such as email, FTP and also access to its own databases and libraries. It also provides access to European gigabit science and development network GEANT along with other research and development and academic networks in the world. Any person or organisation, commercial or noncommercial, can become a member of SANET as long as it accepts the rules and the statute of SANET network.
