Leonie Schäfer of DFN and Veronika Di Luna of GÉANT have taken over management of the EU-funded EaPConnect project, with effect from 1 September 2018.
EaPConnect is developing network connectivity and services for the research and education communities in Eastern Partnership countries: Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine. The six beneficiary partners – the national research and education networks of those countries – welcomed Leonie and Veronika to their new role.
Leonie and Veronika have both been closely involved with EaPConnect in different capacities since the project began; their new shared role in leading the whole portfolio of project activities will be an opportunity to make greater use of their wide range of skills and expertise.
