Call for Nominations: Rob Blokzijl Award

ripe news ripe community update

Nominations are open and the recipient of the award will be announced during RIPE 87, taking place from 27 November - 1 December 2023.

Rob Blokzijl, Internet pioneer, founder and Chair of RIPE for 25 years, contributed consistently and generously to the development of the Internet in this region. To celebrate his contribution, the Award Committee are interested in nominations of those who reflect his approach in either a technical or operational capacity.

The Award Committee are particularly interested to receive nominations of individuals who, in addition to their own contributions, have also supported and enabled others anywhere in the world. Those making nominations are also encouraged to consider not only the community members in the later stages of their careers or who are widely known but also those who may have contributed greatly in the springtime of their career or discreetly for the greater good.

Nominations must be submitted before 29 October 2023 at 23:59 UTC.

Details on making a nomination are available on the Rob Blokzijl Foundation website.
