Next Generation Network Forum
The Global Next Generation Network (NGN) Showcase Event at CIGRE Paris Session 2021 invites all CIGRE National Committees (and individual CIGRE members from countries that do not have a National Committee) to participate in the Global NGN Presentation Showcases at the CIGRE Paris Sessions.
The showcase was originally initiated by the CIGRE-UK NGN, aiming at providing a good development and networking opportunity for global NGN members to showcase their work in this excellent international platform.
Through the event, it was also expected to enhance international collaboration between NGN groups and increase NGN member participation in the Paris Session, while driving sustainable membership growth for CIGRE by engaging with potential future experts in the industry.
The first two global NGN presentation showcases were held at the CIGRE Paris Sessions in 2016 and 2018, and both turned out to be great successes: 14 countries participated and 22 NGN members got the chance to present their work in 2016, and 21 countries participated and 31 NGN members got the chance to present their work in 2018. With the positive feedback received from participants, Study Committee (SC) chairs and audiences, it is planned to hold the third event at CIGRE Paris Session 2021.
