TNC22: three weeks to the big day!

With only three weeks to TNC22 let us share with you some of the latest news and updates about GÉANT’s flagship conference.

Keynote speakers line-up
We are delighted that Dr Gihan Kamel, Principal Scientist at the Synchrotron-light for Experimental Science and Applications in the Middle East (SESAME), accepted our invitation to be the closing keynote speaker at our conference. Dr Kamel will talk about the role of SESAME not only as a pioneer research centre, but also as a bridge for peace and a vehicle for economic growth, and how scientific research can bring people from diverse backgrounds together to achieve a common goal. Dr Gihan Kamel’s inspiring keynote will take place on Thursday 16 June at 16:00 CEST. Don’t miss it!

Due to personal reasons Niall Murphy had to cancel his keynote participation, but we are very grateful and excited to confirm that João Bacelar Executive Manager at the European University Foundation, an organisation that aims to accelerate the modernisation of Higher Education in Europe, has graciously accepted our invite, notwithstanding the late notice, to talk to us about the digital rebirth of the Erasmus+ programme. We look forward to João’s keynote on Wednesday 15 June at 11:00 CEST.

Let’s talk about Trieste!
 A combination of geographical and historical factors make Trieste a unique and fascinating place. This beautiful Italian city is culturally very diverse, embracing its Roman, Balkanic, Venetian, Austrian, Greek, and Jewish origins. For centuries Trieste was considered one of the most prosperous Mediterranean seaports as well as a capital of literature and music. After the decline caused by WWII, in the 70s the city went through an economic revival which saw many industries flourish. In 2020 Trieste was named the European Capital of Science, today it’s an important research hub and its international research centres attract scientists from all over the world.
And we could go on, but come to TNC22 and find out for yourself!
