The RIPE NCC is an independent, not-for-profit membership organisation that supports the infrastructure of the Internet through technical coordination in its service region.
We regularly organise meetings where Internet industry experts mix with local governments, key players in the global and local Internet industry and RIPE NCC staff.
The RIPE NCC facilitates a range of meetings for different audiences.
The RIPE NCC membership consists of over 20,000 organisations across 76 countries that act as Local Internet Registries (LIRs) to provide Internet services in their own countries. Organisations that provide services in any of those countries can become members of the RIPE NCC in order to receive Internet resources.
