During the last GÉANT General Assembly, held in Prague on 23 November, attendees voted for four open GÉANT Board positions.
Among the newly appointed BoD members is GARR director Federico Ruggieri, who commented “the international dimension is a key to GARR mission and to our everyday commitment in supporting Italian researchers in their collaborations, which are becoming increasingly global. GÉANT is the cornerstone upon which we National Research and Education Networks build such support. That’s the reason why I am personally committed to further improve it and bring it beyond 2020. I believe that by appointing me the other European NRENs’ representatives are recognising the job GARR has been doing so far towards this end, and offering their trust for the future”.
