TNC19 the biggest yet


TNC19’s extensive programme came to a wonderful end on Wednesday 19 June, in another record year for TNC. The Closing Plenary featured talks from GÉANT CEO Erik Huizer; and founder and former CEO of the UbuntuNet Alliance Tusu Tusubira. Tusu’s message was a clear one: we need a community-based approach to ensure the success of R&E networks in an accelerating environment of change. 

Breaking records: TNC19 by numbers

With so many highlights from the week we can pick just a few here to highlight:

  • 805 participants from 70 countries
  • 157 speakers, 26 sessions and 40 side meetings.
  • Our video streams also attracted 2491 unique viewers from 24 countries
  • And on social media we have had great engagement with over 3000 tweets!
