Collaboration across experts in different geographic locations and disciplines is crucial to the GÉANT community. The GÉANT Community Programme (GCP) with Task Forces (TFs), Special Interest Groups (SIGs) and special workshops and trainings assist GÉANT, NRENs and other R&E bodies to collaborate and share experiences. The GCP guides future developments of networking services, technology and also a variety of non-technical topics for the GÉANT community.
The GCP is a grassroots, voluntary initiative built by world experts from NRENs, user organisations, research institutions, commercial and industrial sectors. TFs and SIGs provide an effective framework for forums to share information and best practices and to discuss possible innovations and further developments of services.
The thematic areas currently supported by the GCP are listed in the dedicated web page.
The Community Programme Portfolio includes different activities, specialised groups and workshops.
