About TNC22

TNC22 will be hosted by GARR, the Italian Research and Education Network, and will take place in Trieste, Italy from June 13-17, 2022.

Navigating the Unexplored

You are invited to navigate the unexplored with us in Trieste! Throughout the centuries, Trieste has been the departure point for many explorations and expeditions. It is also renowned for its historic international sailing regatta – the Barcolana.

For the last two years we have all been navigating the unexplored as we have learned to manage new ways of working, new ways of living, and new ways of interacting. As we look to the future and beyond the pandemic, the ways in which we interact will be forever changed. TNC22 is an opportunity to reflect on how we will reconnect with each other, on ways to explore and manage our changed environment, and on how we can emerge stronger together.

Whilst we continue to monitor the development of the pandemic, our plans are to host a face-to-face event for the GÉANT community to meet in person. Basic remote participation will also be offered for those unable to travel.
