​Latest issue of GÉANT CONNECT 21 ​n​​ow ready to view 

08 March 2016 | Cambridge, UK​​


Welcome from the​​ Editor

This March sees the annual gathering of GÉANT (GN4-1) Project participants at its symposium event – a great opportunity to reconnect with colleagues and collaborate on work programmes for the benefit of Europe’s research and education community. Together with the upcoming TNC16 – Europe’s largest and most prestigious research networking conference, these events serve to remind us that human networking is every bit as important as data networking when it comes to connecting, communicating and collaborating.


It is this combination of passionate people and tremendous technology that continues to attract vast earth observation projects such as Copernicus (see page 8), newly connected countries such as Lebanon (see page 31) and ensures this community is the partner of choice when it comes to helping to network the African continent (see page 27). 


And with clear leadership in vital areas such as federated identity (see page 19) and cloud solutions (see page 20) the GÉANT community – together with its e-infrastructure partners – is set to remain at the very heart of global research networking, and to help push research and education ever further forward. 


Read all this and more in the latest issue of CONNECT! We hope you enjoy this issue, and look forward to seeing many of you in person at these exciting events!
