Jisc chief executive takes a seat on GÉANT board

Jisc’s chief executive has been voted to the board of GÉANT – the umbrella organisation for European national research and education networks (NRENs).

Paul Feldman was elected at last week’s GÉANT General Assembly meeting in Prague.

Through interconnections with its 38 NREN partners, the GÉANT network is the largest and most advanced REN in the world, connecting more than 50 million users at 10,000 institutions across Europe and supporting all scientific disciplines. Jisc’s high-speed Janet Network is the busiest of its member networks and connects all the UK’s universities, colleges and research centres.

Paul’s appointment continues Jisc’s tradition at the heart of GÉANT’s collective decision-making and demonstrates our commitment to boosting opportunities for UK researchers to collaborate across Europe and globally.
