Project Overview

The BELLA Programme addresses the long-term interconnectivity needs of the European and Latin American research and education communities, achieved through two projects: BELLA-S, which secures spectrum rights on the EllaLink submarine cable and ensures "future-proof" connectivity requirements; and BELLA-T, which provides for the completion of fibre connectivity for advanced Latin American networks - bringing much-needed high-speed connectivity and equal access to research and education communities across the continent.

By co-investing in the private companies responsible for implementing the submarine cable, it will be possible to ensure that a large infrastructure capacity will be earmarked for the use of academia and non-profit organisations in Europe and Latin America
