GLAD seeks young talents for the Future Talent Programme

The Future Talent Programme (FTP) opens its doors to bright students and invites them to take part in the FTP Lightning Talk Challenge at TNC20, 8-12 June, Brighton, UK.

This programme prepares young professionals to promote and make an impact with an idea, project or research to an audience. After intensive training the students are given the opportunity to submit their proposals to the TNC Programme Committee. If selected, they will come to TNC20 to deliver a Lightning Talk on stage.

This is the 4th year that GLAD is running the Lightning Talk Challenge initiative of the Future Talent Programme. Not only this has been an incredible professional development experience for all candidates but above all it has left them with amazing and positive memories of GÉANT and TNC. Watch the video to see what participants say about their experiences.

The programme is open to students working on computer networking or any other technology related topics. They must be nominated by a GÉANT project partner. GÉANT partners are invited and encouraged to reach out to their communities and nominate talents for FTP.

Registration deadline: 28 February 2020
