There are three main operational areas of work in the GÉANT Project:
- to build and operate the pan-European research and education network;
- to develop and deliver a portfolio of innovative, federated services including connectivity, trust and identity, cloud, real-time collaboration and media services;
- to undertake collaborative research programmes.
The GÉANT Project is structured into four functional activity groups to deliver this:
Networking Activities (NAs) support the operation and management of all GN4-2 activities including project management, internal and external communications and promotion, international liaison, and business development.
Service Activities (SAs) provide the GÉANT Project services for the research and education community.
Joint Research Activities (JRAs) are targeted at critical analyses of future network and application technologies with a view to future deployment of emerging technologies across the network and services.
These three activity groups are split into 10 activities, as shown below.
