2020 GÉANT Community Award – Multiple celebrations!

Despite the cancellation of TNC20 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the GÉANT Community decided to go ahead with the celebrations for its prestigious award. On June 11, GÉANT hosted the 2020 Community Award in an online event attended by over 140 participants who joined the virtual celebrations from all corners of the globe.

Claudio Allocchio, Chair of the GÉANT Community Committee said: “At times like these it is even more significant to celebrate our unique community through the outstanding work carried out by some of its members.”

We are excited to announce this year’s awardees: Ann Harding (SWITCH) and Leif Johansson (SUNET) in the category ‘impactful contributors to the GÉANT project or wider community activities over a sustained period of time’ and Niels van Dijk (SURF) in the category ‘outstanding contributions to the project or community which have immediately led to significant and recognisable new ideas, developments or improvements over the last 12 months’.

Thank you for celebrating with us on this special occasion!
