GÉANT is the leading collaboration on network and related infrastructure and services for the benefit of research and education, contributing to Europe's economic growth and competitiveness. 


GÉANT mobilises the expertise and experience of hundreds of professionals from among its staff, member organisations, institutions and the wider research and education networking community. Its activities build on the human and other resources that they contribute.

  • Network operations: We plan, procure, build and operate large-scale, advanced international high-speed networks, including the 500Gbps pan-European GÉANT network;

  • Events: We organise events such as workshops, meetings, training and conferences, including TNC – Europe’s largest networking conference for research and education;

  • Services: We develop, operate and support services relating to such areas as trust and identity, security and certification, mobility and access, and media and real-time communications;

  • Expertise: We gather community expertise, and provide staff expertise in procurement, project management, community engagement, network operations, and outreach including dissemination and training;

  • Collaboration: ​We liaise with other e-infrastructure organisations, user communities, industry and with the European Union.

Many of our task forces, special interest groups, workshops, conferences and other activities are open to anyone with appropriate expertise, manpower, equipment or services.
