COVID-19: NREN Impact & Responses
MetadataShow full item record
The COVID-19 pandemic had an immediate impact on the research and education community across the globe as governments imposed lockdowns to try and control the situation, leaving academics and students unable to access resources, connectivity, and other services on campus. Consequently NRENs needed to adapt quickly. Fortunately, many were able to switch to remote working quickly, but adapting services to meet the new circumstances was more of a challenge. GÉANT reviewed how NRENs were affected and how they adapted services in the first few months of the pandemic. This talk will discuss what GÉANT discovered, and discuss where we are 18 months on, ending with considerations for what this means for the future.
