This man meets this lady, they shake hands.

Today at an event at the EU Commission in Brussels the report from the GEANT Expert Group  was presented to EU Commission Vice-President Neelie Kroes.

"The GÉANT Expert Group (GEG) will articulate a 2020 vision for European Research and Education
networking and will identify an action plan for realising this vision. The report is expected to exercise a
strong influence in EU policy in the area, and it will feed into the 2012-2013 FP7 work programme for
Research Infrastructures and into the FP8 preparations."
