Bringing together young professionals and networking community
At GÉANT we believe it is crucial to engage, foster and develop future IT professionals. This sentiment holds true now, more than ever, as the sector undergoes a period of considerable growth. As we are committed to the up-skilling of Europe’s future IT workforce, we have set up the GÉANT Future Talent Programme.
Future Talent Programme is a gateway to young professionals to meet the European and global networking community. The Programme offers young professionals an opportunity to grow and develop their skills through free webinar series, internships or coaching. Furthermore, it rewards the learning by offering free admission to international, prestigious events to those, whose work was recognised by an independent panel.
GÉANT learning and Development GLAD) teams up with GÉANT project partners to reach out and mentor young talented professionals to participate in one of our initiatives. Since the start in 2017 the Future Talent Programme had participation from 22 NREN, featuring 44 bright and young professionals. The programme is funded by the GÉANT Project.
