GÉANT communications infrastructure currently makes network services available to approximately 40 million users at more than 3,500 institutions in 38 European countries. The connectivity provided includes connection of European National Research and Education Networks (NRENs) via GÉANT with similar networks such as the Internet2 and ESnet in the USA, the CANARIE in Canada and networks on other continents. The seven years framework project GÉANT2020 was launched in May 2015.

GN4-3 is the ongoing third phase of the GEANT2020 project. The project is a follow-up on the implementation defined in the framework agreement (FPA) made between the GÉANT Consortium and the European Commission in April 2015 for a period of 68 months. The project objective is to develop a pan-European communications infrastructure for GÉANT R&D and to follow up on the implementation of the projects GN4-1 and GNA4-2.
