Report on Knowledge without borders – GÉANT 2020

Source European Commission
In short

This report presents the GÉANT experts’ views on the future of the pan-European research and education network GÉANT. It makes specific recommendations to policy makers, funding bodies and the research and the education networks community for supporting and expanding knowledge communities, pushing state-of-the-art technology and adapting to change both from a governance and funding point of view. In preparing the report the GEG took input from a variety of sources including interviews with over 25 experts operating in the research networking and related fields, as well as input from official policy documents, NREN reports and GÉANT deliverables.

The GÉANT network has extensive links to other world regions through collaboration with further networks, including those in North and Latin America, the Balkans, the Mediterranean, Black Sea, South Africa, Central and Eastern Asia.

The report was presented on Tuesday 4 October 2011 to Neelie Kroes, Vice President of the European Commission and European Digital Agenda Commissioner.
