The RIPE Academic Cooperation Initiative (RACI)

The RIPE Academic Cooperation Initiative (RACI) connects members of the academic community with the RIPE community by inviting students and researchers to present their Internet-related research at RIPE Meetings, ENOG, MENOG, SEE meetings and RIPE NCC Days.

Are you busy carrying out research on one of the topics below?

  • Network measurement and analysis
  • IPv6 deployment
  • BGP routing
  • Network security
  • Internet governance
  • Peering and interconnection
  • Internet of Things (IoT)
  • Sustainability in ICT


The RACI programme is currently on pause as all of our upcoming meetings are taking place online due to COVID-19 and participation is free of charge and open to all. If you are an academic and wish to present at one of our meetings, we invite you to directly submit your presentation via the call for presentations for each meeting.
