SINTEF’s Dr. Marie Moe opens TNC18 with heart-hacking keynote

A fascinating opening keynote by Research Scientist Dr. Marie Moe of SINTEF, Scandinavia’s largest independent research organisation, kicked off this year’s TNC – the GÉANT community’s premier annual event.

Exploring the issue of medical implants that are connected to networks, and their potential vulnerability to cyber security, the keynote aimed to raise awareness and to inspire others to do more research on the security of connected medical implants.

The keynote was part of the opening plenary for TNC18 – the 34th edition of TNC – which is hosted by Norway’s national research and education network, Uninett, and held in the beautiful city of Trondheim, Norway.

The opening plenary included welcoming speeches from GÉANT Chair of the Board Christian Grimm and GÉANT CEO Erik Huizer; and from Pro-Rector of Research at NTNU (Norwegian University of Science and Technology), Norway’s largest university.
