EC GEANT Expert Group Releases report on “Knowledge without Borders – GÉANT 2020”

This man meets this lady, they shake hands.

Today at an event at the EU Commission in Brussels the report from the GEANT Expert Group  was presented to EU Commission Vice-President Neelie Kroes.

The GEANT Expert Group’s mandate from the Eu Commission was to:

“The GÉANT Expert Group (GEG) will articulate a 2020 vision for European Research and Education
networking and will identify an action plan for realising this vision. The report is expected to exercise a
strong influence in EU policy in the area, and it will feed into the 2012-2013 FP7 work programme for
Research Infrastructures and into the FP8 preparations.”

The GEANT Expert Group has received input from stakeholders within the NREN Community including NORDUnet’s 2020 Inspirations Paper as well as industry partners and user communities. A full list of contributors can be found on page 51 of the report.
