​Reminder to submit nominations for 2016 Community Award!

We have received a number of nominations for the 2016 research and education networking Community Award, but more submissions are welcome still. This is a reminder to submit your nomination(s) for community members who have made outstanding contributions to collaborative work and the development of services and technologies by sharing their ideas, expertise and time with the community. Submissions can be made until 31 March, midnight CEST.


The nomination form is available online. It has been shortened since last year and it is now possible to submit more than one nomination. A maximum of two submissions per person will be accepted; if more nominations are submitted, only the first two complete forms will be taken into account. Nominations for people who were nominated but not selected in previous years will also be accepted. Nominations can be submitted via: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/2016communityaward.


The winner will be selected by a panel of judges from the GÉANT community and will be presented with a token gift during the closing plenary session of the 2016 networking conference, TNC16, in Prague, Czech Republic in June.


Who can submit and be nominated?

Full details of the criteria for nominees and for people submitting nominations are available via the 'Submit a nomination' web page. This also contains some insights into the information required in the submission form.
