Joint meeting of the SIG-MSP and EaPConnect Project
11-12 October 2022, Tbilisi, Georgia
The EaPConnect Project and GÉANT Special Interest Group for Managed Services Portfolio (SIG-MSP) joined forces at a meeting in Tbilisi, Georgia on 11 and 12 October 2022. The meeting was hosted by GRENA, the Georgian Research and Educational Networking Association and was attended by ASNET-AM (Armenia), AzScienceNet (Azerbaijan), GRENA (Georgia) and RENAM (Moldova), members of the EaPConnect Technical Committee and invited guests from the GÉANT R&E community. Unfortunately, due to the recent exacerbation of the Russian attacks in several Ukrainian cities, our URAN colleagues were not able to join the event even remotely.
For all participants the meeting was a welcome opportunity to come face-face and reconnect in-person for the first time since the pandemic.
The meeting started with a warm welcome by Ramaz Kvatadze, the Executive Director of GRENA. Ramaz also provided an insight into GRENA and the organisation’s recent milestones.
