Welcome to the GÉANT2 Website

GÉANT2 is the high-bandwidth, academic Internet serving Europe’s research and education community. Connecting over 30 million researchers with a multi-domain topology spanning 34 European countries and links to a number of other world regions, GÉANT2 is at the heart of global research networking.

GÉANT2 is co-funded by the European Commission and Europe's national research and education networks, and is managed by DANTE.

This project has now finished. The current GÉANT project is available here
