A memorable TNC22 closing plenary, led by GÉANT CEO Erik Huizer and featuring keynote speaker Dr Gihan Kamel, brought to an end a wonderful week full of learning, sharing, and collaborating (as well as catching up with old friends and making new ones) and gave participants an early look ahead to a brand-new host for TNC23. 

This year’s TNC was the first #Face2FaceTNC in three years despite some ongoing challenges with international travel, so it’s remarkable and great to see that 735 participants from 69 different nations joined the conference in Trieste, with a further 500+ from 33 different nations following online. 

They all had the opportunity to watch 122 speakers deliver a total of 64 presentations. And everybody, in Trieste or online, took part on social media: we saw over 1,300 TNC-related posts across social media, 77,000 impressions on the @TNC_GEANT Twitter profile, and an estimated reach of over 2 million impressions worldwide across social media.

In a related development, a staff of WACREN – Eric Attou participated in the Emerging NREN Programme in Trieste. The ENP program organised by GEANT aims help Emerging NREN to easily integrate the worldwide NREN Community.
