terena networking conference 2010
GN3 Distributed workshops
GN3 is co-funded by the European National Research and Education Networks (NRENs) and the European Union (EU) through the European Commission’s Seventh Research and Development Framework Programme, The GN3 project started in April of 2009, following on from the GN2 project.
Known simply as GÉANT, GN3 is the third 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, with some 16 GÉANT presentations included in the appropriate topic-oriented parallel
sessions throughout the conference programme.
As the new GÉANT project has recently started, two of the presentations will be dedicated to explaining the focus, plans and objectives of the project and network, and the innovation, technology and service development programmes. The majority of the presentations demonstrate the depth and breadth of the technological research and developments for the Service and Research
activities of both the GN2 and the new GN3 projects.
