RIPE NCC LogoThe RIPE NCC is one of five Regional Internet Registries (RIRs) that support the global operation of the Internet. The RIPE NCC is an independent, non-profit organisation responsible for distributing and administering Internet number resources for over 10,000 members in Europe, the Middle East, and parts of Central Asia. The organisation supports the global Internet community by providing data, expertise and a neutral platform for the exchange of ideas.



The Institute for Research in Fundamental Sciences (IPM) affiliated with the Ministry of Science, Research, and Technology, was founded in 1989 under the name of Institute for Studies in Theoretical Physics and Mathematics (from which it has retained its present acronym). The Institute started its work with three core research groups in theoretical physics and three core research groups in mathematics, and with very few resources. Its goal was to carry out original research in these areas and at the same time creating a model that could be used to propagate and improve research all over Iran. The Institute was able to grow and garner more resources and attract researchers from other disciplines as well. Thus in 1997 it acquired its present name and at present is comprised of 8 schools conducting research in many different areas of fundamental sciences. The Institute enjoys many infrastructures required for such an establishment including networking, several laboratories, and an up-to-date library whose size and capabilities are increasing every day. The Institute is an active participant in the research arena of Iran.

IRANET LogoIRANET (Iranian Research & Academic NETwork), the networking division operating in IPM infrastructure, was founded in 1990. At the time connecting Iran to Europe's academic networks and Internet and the provision of a networking backbone for the academic sector were the primary tasks of IRANET. IRANET was the first LIR in Iran, and ir ccTLD used to be operated by IRANET before it became a separate entity in IPM.  IRANET is a pioneer in the computer inter-networking field.
