​Students enlighten TNC17! 

Linz, Austria | 30 May 2017


What better place than TNC to introduce future innovators to our community? This year GÉANT has launched a joint programme with research and education networks to bring students to TNC to deliver a lightning talk.

Bright IT students from across Europe were nominated to submit their best idea and follow a training course provided by GÉANT’s Learning and Development team to prepare for the occasion.

These students will deliver their presentations during the TNC17 Lightning Talk session on Tuesday May 30.

FTF is an initiative led by Nadia Sluer, Learning and Development coordinator at GÉANT. "We aim to attract and support the young talents our community needs to grow and achieve our long-term objectives by providing them with engaging activities and programmes adding up to their academic studies." ​
