GÉANT Community​

The GÉANT Community Committee (GCC) has the oversight of the GÉANT Community Programme.

The GÉANT Community Programme is made up of Task Forces (TFs), Special Interest Groups (SIGs), bespoke workshops and trainings, and collaborative projects and services designed to facilitate collaboration and the sharing of experiences between GÉANT, NRENs, other R&E bodies and members of the community. The GÉANT Community Programme guides the future development of R&E services, technology and also a variety of non-technical topics for the GÉANT community.

The GÉANT Community Programme is a grassroot, voluntary initiative built by world experts from NRENs, user organisations, research institutions, commercial and industrial sectors. TFs and SIGs provide an effective framework for forums toshare information and best practices and to discuss possible innovations and further development of services.
