Waves can build up and break down shorelines, their impact is transformative and powerful.  Making Waves, the theme chosen for TNC21, is about the similarly transformative and disruptive capabilities that digital technologies across networking, Trust & Identity and cloud services can deliver for Research & Education.

TNC brings together decision makers, networking and collaboration specialists, plus identity and access management experts from all major European NRENs, universities, worldwide sister institutions, as well as industry representatives.

NRENs across the globe connect the teams delivering discoveries that impact and improve our lives via some of the fastest data networks, most trusted identity services known to mankind and collaboration. NRENs have the intellectual bravery to inspire, disrupt and make waves. NRENs enable progress.

Our footprint as NRENs is visible in the identity space, technology, the environment and society. We are a conscious and forward-looking community working together to build a better future. This is the time to highlight our impact and test our thinking to address the greatest challenges for the future of humanity and the planet.
