TNC24: Rennes, France | 10-14 June 2024

ABOUT

TNC24 will take place in Rennes, France, from 1014 June 2024 and will be hosted by RENATER, the National Research and Education Network of France.

TNC FOR THE FIRST TIME?

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.

DIGITAL GENERATIONS

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.

THE HOST

RASH is the National Research and Education Network of Albania.

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.

EMERGING NREN PROGRAMME

SYNERGIES AND CONNECTIONS

The Emerging NREN 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 NREN staff members who would not be able to participate otherwise, focusing particularly on engineering and technical personnel. For further information, please contact Leila Dekkar at GÉANT.

FUTURE TALENT PROGRAMME

The Future Talent Programme’s Lightning Talk Challenge offers students and young professionals the opportunity to present their project or idea to TNC’s international audience. Nominated by GÉANT project partners, participants receive training to help them master presentation skills and prepare to deliver an impactful presentation. For further information, please contact Lisa Melrose at GÉANT.
