Next Generation Network Presentation Showcase
The Global Next Generation Network (NGN) Presentation 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.
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 three global Next Generation Network (NGN) Presentation Showcases were held at the CIGRE Paris Sessions in 2016 and 2018 and at the CIGRE e-Session in 2020, and all three turned out to be great successes: 22 NGN members from 14 countries got the chance to present their work in 2016, 31 NGN members from 21 countries got the chance to present their work in 2018, and 33 NGN members from 23 countries got the chance to present their work in 2020. With the positive feedback received from participants, Study Committee (SC) Chairs and audiences, it is planned to hold the fourth event at CIGRE Paris Session 2021.
