The GENEVA framework allows fully differential, fixed order calculations at NNLO to be matched to parton shower programs while also achieving NNLL’ accuracy in the distribution of a jet resolution variable. To date, it has been successfully applied to jet production in e+e- collisions and also the Drell-Yan process at the LHC. In this talk I will discuss the methodology and present its application to VH production at the LHC, which has recently been measured for the first time. I will present comparisons with dedicated fixed order programs as well as showered distributions and discuss future avenues to be explored.
