The Future Talent Programme challenges students to take part in TNC21

GÉANT’s Future Talent Programme (FTP) encourages students (nominated by the NRENs) from across the research and education community to submit ideas for presentation in the Lightning Talks session at TNC. Selected students are invited to present their idea, project or research to TNC’s global audience

FTP provides free training to nominated candidates to prepare for the Lightning Talks challenge. The free learning consists of presentation skills training, usually provided by an established professional public speaking and pitch coach. All Lightning Talks proposals submitted by FTP participants go through the regular TNC submission process and are judged by the conference’s Programme Committee.

Registration for the programme closes on 28 February 2021. Public Speaking workshops will take place in March and April. For detailed information, visit:

TNC21 will take place on 21-25 June 2021, it will be fully online and free to all participants for the first time in the history of TNC due to restrictions caused by the COVID pandemic.
