PANEL - Facing challenges: the European NREN landscape Save to my Google calendar

The world of Educational and Research Networks (NRENs) seems to be in a turmoil that is even stronger than usual. Global developments such as the financial crisis, Electronic surveillance by governments, Privacy issues, security issues and discussions around Internet Governance have to be dealt with while at the same time customers (students, teachers, researchers) are getting more and more demanding in terms of trust, availability, ease of use, bandwidth and latency.

How do NRENs all over the world, but particularly in Europe, deal with this? How do they organize themselves to face these challenges. And what is the role of this mysterious club called the CEO forum?

This panel, in the form of an interview session, will focus on the organizational and cooperation side of the issues. there will be no presentations, but the session leader will interview the panelists and the audience will have a chance to voice its opinion as well.
