The largest and most prestigious research and education networking conference, TNC attracts a truly diverse audience of over 800 participants from more than 70 countries, representing national and regional research and education networks, schools and universities, technology providers, and many of the world’s most exciting scientific projects. By bringing together decision-makers, networking and security specialists, identity and access management experts, researchers, academics and students, TNC offers a unique collaborative experience.
We often hear the term ‘digital natives’ to describe a person who has grown up in the information age but we are all living in that age – we are all the Digital Generations.
Tirana, awarded the European Youth Capital for 2022, is the perfect juxtaposition of these generations with a vibrant community of students and young workers.
Serving all digital generations is a challenge that NRENs must face, from building innovative educational experiences to supporting advanced research projects that have spanned decades.
Our conference in Tirana will be the perfect opportunity to reflect on how we engage digital generations and to reflect on how we are integrating future generations into our own organisations and infrastructure.
RASH is the National Research and Education Network of Albania. Established in 2007 following an Agreement between Albania and Italy, in 2011 RASH started operating nationally and in 2012 at international level becoming a full member of the GÉANT Association. In 2018, following an agreement between all the rectors and the Ministry of Education of Albania, RASH became an autonomous inter-institutional R&D centre for ICT.
RASH has developed in-house 10 software platforms for Higher Education, the NREN also builds and manages the academic network backbone and campus networks for public universities and research institutions in Albania. Its e-infrastructure is connected with the GÉANT network, RASH has also deployed in the country several GÉANT services supporting all scientific disciplines.
Participation and synergies
The programme aims to integrate individuals from emerging NRENs from around the globe into the TNC community and create further synergies and connections at different organisational levels between European and international NRENs. Its purpose is to bring to TNC NRENs staff members who would not be able to participate otherwise, focusing particularly on engineering and technical personnel.
The Future Talent Programme’s Lightning Talk Challenge offers students and young professionals an opportunity to present their project or idea to an international audience at GÉANT’s annual TNC conference. Nominated by GÉANT project partners, participants receive training to help them master presentation skills and prepare for an impactful presentation.
