Through the joined forces of Europe's national research and education networking (NREN) organisations, the GÉANT Project has been a vital element of Europe's e-infrastructure strategy for over 15 years. For GN4 Phase 2 (GN4-2), the new iteration of the project which began on 1 May 2016, 38 partners unite under a common approach to advance the state of the art in networking and services innovation.

Partners work together to provide network connectivity and to collaborate on joint research activities, investing in the development and delivery of an advanced portfolio of services, tools and network capabilities to institutions, projects and researchers.

At the heart of TNC17, GÉANT Project speakers will demonstrate the impact of the leading network for research and education through the sessions listed below.
