Known simply as GÉANT, GN3plus & GN4 is the forth and fifth term of the successful GÉANT network and project that lie at the heart of the EU’s e-Infrastructure strategy. The project will shape the Internet of the future through the pan-European GÉANT network and a portfolio of advanced services for the research and education community. GÉANT also tackles the digital divide of research and education networking across Europe and fosters technological research to assure Europe’s role at the forefront of networking and e-Science.
In addition to the GÉANT backbone network service, the GÉANT project encompasses a number of Service, Joint Research Activities and Networking Activities. As part of the Networking Activity on "Joint Dissemination and Outreach", a GÉANT workshop event is attached to the annual TERENA conferences, and GÉANT presentations included in the appropriate topic-oriented parallel sessions throughout the conference programme.
