Join the Research Engagement Development activities at TNC24!

The Steering Committee of the Special Interest Group on Research Engagement Development (SIG-RED) invites all stakeholders to join RED activities at TNC24.

The SIG-RED Town Hall meeting will take place on Monday, June 10, 2024, at 09:00-12:30 CEST in Salle 13. Join us to engage and understand R&E communities and their demands. You can explore with us and share your experiences, ideas and opinions about successful approaches to RED from around the world.

You can also meet representatives from SIG-RED at the SIG Marketplace, organised on Thursday, June 13, 2024, at 10:00-11:00 CEST in the Community Hub 14. Come to this informal space to find out how you can join the GÉANT Community and learn more about community-led initiatives, which facilitate new connections and collaborations.

On Friday, June 14, 2024 with the help of RENATER, the French NREN, we’ve been able to arrange at 14:00-16:00 CEST a visit to the FOTON Institute in Rennes. This institute, part of the INSA Rennes campus, is a laboratory focusing on the development of materials, quantum nanostructures, and devices needed to develop such applications as quantum communications, optical communications or fibre sensing technologies.

All participants of TNC24 are welcome to join this rare opportunity. The tour is free! However, please register to participate – so we can let the organisers know how many people they can expect:
