29 May may seem like a long time into the future, but the Early Bird registration for TNC2017 - to be held on 29 May - 2 June in Linz, Austria, is already open.
The theme of the 2017 conference will be The Art of Creative Networking”. As always, the conference will bring together the European R&E Networking community and their friends and partners from around the global.
NORDUnet is always interested in talking to upcoming talent in software and engineering. That is why you can meet us at the Armada event at Kungliga Tekniska Högskolan (KTH) in Stockholm again this year. THS Armada is the annual career fair organised by the Student Union at KTH Royal Institute of Technology and this year it takes place on 22-23 November.
Come visit us if you’re attending the event. NORDUnet staff will be here to answer all your questions. You can find us by the new cafeteria on the second level at Nymble.
On behalf of Swedish SUNET and Danish DeiC, NORDUnet has invited Learning Management System vendors to bid for framework contracts for a LMS platform for the two countries, either a cloud based SaaS or an on premise installation with multi-tenant capability.
As the Danish and Swedish key requirements are nearly identical, NORDUnet is able to conduct a shared framework tender. Using the competitive dialogue procedure as specified by the EU, the final bidders will be selected in three stages: Prequalification, Dialogue and Final Bid.
Cinia and NORDUnet have signed a MOU regarding a network sharing arrangement, which aims to benefit the Nordic business and science society. The co-operation will provide better services and create new opportunities for scientific organisations, government bodies, and public and private enterprises.
As a first result of this agreement NORDUnet will gain access to 100 Gbps of capacity on the C-Lion cable between Finland and Germany, on the stretch between Helsinki and Hamburg.
