GÉANT serves the research and education networking community in Europe, helping them to deliver innovative networks, technologies and services for research and education.
Our extensive global relationships support this collaborative work and are helping to connect the world.
GÉANT mobilises the expertise and experience of hundreds of professionals from among its staff, member organisations, institutions and the wider research and education networking community. Its activities build on the human and other resources that they contribute.
- Support: We provide practical support for members, educators, researchers and other partners to collaborate, innovate, share knowledge and agree on policies and strategies;
- Network operations: We plan, procure, build and operate large-scale, advanced international high-speed networks, including the 500Gbps pan-European GÉANT network;
- Events: We organise events such as workshops, meetings, training and conferences, including TNC – Europe’s largest networking conference for research and education;
- Services: We develop, operate and support services relating to such areas as trust and identity, security and certification, mobility and access, and media and real-time communications;
- Expertise: We gather community expertise, and provide staff expertise in procurement, project management, community engagement, network operations, and outreach including dissemination and training;
- Collaboration: We liaise with other e-infrastructure organisations, user communities, industry and with the European Union.
Many of our task forces, special interest groups, workshops, conferences and other activities are open to anyone with appropriate expertise, manpower, equipment or services. Other activities are carried out by staff or partners in the context of a specific project or as part of the core business of GÉANT.
