TIM Programme

TIM (Trust and Identity Incubator Mentorship) is a programme that gives IT- and network students with a special interest in Trust and Identity (T&I) a chance to join the development of cutting-edge solutions in the Trust and Identity world.

The programme takes place in the form of a 6-months’ internship* at a local European NREN who takes part in the GÉANT project.

Talents work together with subject matter experts (SME’s) to pioneer new ideas in the so called T&I incubator and contribute to a viable and sustainable pipeline of T&I products and services for the GÉANT project.
