The main way that CommNet2 plans to achieve its aims of bringing together our community is through a programme of events aimed at identifying key challenges in the field of ICT. These events mostly look to produce a community defined series of challenges in and responses to particular topics, and of course, to foster collaboration throughout our network.
A key difference of our event programme is that all of our events are proposed and led by members of our community so that they truly represent the key topics and challenges most pertinent in the field today. Therefore, these events are by the community, for the community.
CommNet2 invites YOU to get involved by proposing an event and using your own expertise and networks to pull together event programmes. In doing so, the proposer becomes the Event Champion, taking the lead, with CommNet2 offering administrative and marketing support, guidance, financial contribution and a web presence alongside.
