We invite you to the upcoming RIPE NCC Open House events, offering a focused update from the projects selected for the Community Projects Fund in 2023. These sessions will provide insight into the progress, challenges, and forthcoming goals of each supported initiative.

During these sessions, recipients of the 2023 RIPE NCC Community Projects Fund will present their projects, summarising their journey so far and providing updates on their current progress. There will also be a Q&A session, offering you the opportunity to engage directly with the project teams.


The RIPE NCC has been a foundational pillar in the Internet technical community for over three decades. Seven years ago, we deepened our commitment to fostering innovation by introducing the RIPE NCC Community Projects Fund. Despite the abundance of remarkable initiatives within the community, securing adequate funding continues to be a significant barrier for many. The RIPE NCC Community Projects Fund was established to alleviate this challenge, empowering projects that aim to make a meaningful impact on the Internet and its users.
