​GÉANT’s long-standing project relationship with the European Union (EU) has benefited research, education, and innovation around the world for over 25 years, as the coordinator of projects co-funded by the EU and National Research and Education Networks (NRENs) in Europe, and by those in other world regions.

We work closely with:

  • DG CONNECT – including most recently through the seven-year Horizon 2020 Framework Partnership Agreement (FPA), established and signed in April 2015, implementing five Specific Grant Agreements (SGAs): GN4-1,2,3, GN4-3N and BELLA-S1
  • ​DG INTPA – including the AfricaConnect projects
  • EU4Digital – including the EaPConnect project
  • DG DEFIS – including the BELLA programme

Continuous and close collaboration with the EU ensures GÉANT’s members and partners have the opportunity to support initiatives such as the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) and the Digital Decade.
