To celebrate the memory of Rob Blokzijl, Internet pioneer, founder and Chair of RIPE for 25 years, the Rob Blokzijl Foundation is pleased to invite nominations for the 2018 Rob Blokzijl Award.

You are welcome to apply - or nominate someone - who has made a substantial and sustained technical or operational contribution to the development of the Internet in the RIPE NCC service region (Europe, the Middle East and parts of Central Asia).

We specifically seek nominations of individuals who, in addition to their own contributions, have also supported and enabled others anywhere in the world.
