GÉANT updates its network maps (European backbone and global connections, static and interactive) on a regular basis. GÉANT also participates in a global initiative, along with R&E networks around the globe, to develop a global R&E interactive map.

In the Field Blog Launched in October 2015 as a Global PR Network initiative, the In The Field blog (www.inthefieldstories.net) showcases the impact of R&E networks around the world. To date over 290 story contributions featuring more than 90 NRENs and RRENs across 6 continents have been published. These stories cover a diverse range of topics, including climate science, education, food security etc. This platform is recognised as the go-to place for promoting the strength and usefulness of R&E networks, not just in a country or region, but in the collective global R&E network ecosystem. Come to see us at the GÉANT booth on Wednesday 19th June from 10:30-11:00 to find out how the blog can work for you and to enter a draw to win a slick portable Bluetooth speaker.
