Future Talent Programme for young professionals*
At GÉANT, we believe it is crucial to engage, foster and develop future IT professionals. GÉANT is committed to the up-skilling of Europe’s future IT workforce, and with that in mind we have set up the GÉANT Future Talent Programme. In 2018, the Programme runs two initiatives: Lightening Talk Challenge and Poster Pursuit.
Lightning Talk Challenge is a challenge for young professionals to get their ideas on stage of the TNC Lightning talks programme. Nominated by GÉANT project partners, young talents undergo series of training to help master presentation skills. Finalists of the Challenge receive full financial support for delivering their talk at TNC18.
Poster Pursuit is an initiative for young professionals to visualise their ideas and take part in TNC poster presentation. Young professionals are nominated for Poster Pursuit by GÉANT project partners. Participants undergo series of training to help learn data visualisation techniques. Finalists of the Pursuit receive full financial support for representing their poster at TNC18.
*Undergraduate, graduate and recent (within the past three years) graduate students nominated by GÉANT project partners.
Future Talent programmes are initiated by GÉANT L&D team.
