Update: July 2, 2021

Thank you to all who have contacted us to offer assistance to continue AFRED.
After several conversations with supporters, an adequate solution is not within reach.
Once again, I’d like to thank the many sponsors and partners who contributed to connecting researchers and infrastructure to advance science in our region. The site will be archived and taken offline by July 12, 2021.

Thanks to the generosity of IMPART, will be available for the next several months while we continue to investigate options for its continuation. Please let me know if you are interested in being part of this discussion.

Over the past few years, advances in other online software services have outpaced AFRED, and as a result, the Science Atlantic board has made the difficult decision to retire the database, effective September 20, 2020.

Science Atlantic’s mandate is to support post-secondary science education and research in Atlantic Canada and we will refocus our time and resources on projects that more directly benefit science students, faculty members, and researchers in the region.

We are grateful for the support of our partners, member institutions, and the research offices and individuals who shared equipment, space, and knowledge throughout this project.

For more information, please read the post on our Science Atlantic blog.

Thank you again for your support of AFRED.
