RACI - Get funding to present your research

The RIPE Academic Cooperation Initiative (RACI) connects academia with the RIPE community. It allows academics to share and develop their research by collaborating with leading technical figures in the Internet world.

The RACI programme is currently on pause. 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.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the funds for this initiative for last year, 2021, were instead used to support research projects relevant to work carried out by the RIPE NCC. 

Read more about RACI Project Funding.

We will update this page as soon as the RACI programme opens for applications again.
