Sparkle with Google Cloud is Platinum Partner of TNC22

We are happy to announce our sponsorship - together with Google Cloud - of TNC22 from 13 to 17 June (Trieste Convention Center).

Our representatives would be glad to meet you at booth nr. 1 to show how Sparkle can power the move to the cloud of the European Research & Education community.



For the last two years we have learned to manage new ways of working, living and interacting. TNC22 is an opportunity to reflect on how we will reconnect with each other and how we can emerge stronger together.



Our Paolo Perulli and Erwin Angelier from Google Cloud, are taking part to the panel Cloud Services for R&E: A supplier perspective (Plenary Session - 8D) on June 16 at 9:00 am (CEST).

During the session moderated by Dave Heyns - head of OCRE program - we will discuss on how the cloud has changed the R&E landscape and we'll share provide expert insights into how cloud services will help shape the future of R&E, reflecting both the challenges of the post-COVID landscape.
