at the RIPE NCC, have a programme called RACI: we used to provide funding for academics to present their research at events such as the RIPE Meeting and the RIPE NCC regional meetings. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s funds will instead be used to support research projects. We invite academic and research institutes to submit proposals relevant to work carried out by the RIPE NCC: https://www.ripe.net/participate/ripe/raci/raci-project-funding Please send us a project proposal by 31 May. Your project does not have to be limited to the ones described above! Personally, I would encourage you to focus on impact of Internet on the environmental sustainability (low-tech / green tech), data justice, measuring the Internet health - and impact of COVID-19 on the Internet infrastructure, and/or resilience and well-being of “networkers”. If you choose “other” in the application form, please describe how is your project relevant to the RIPE community Working Groups: https://www.ripe.net/participate/ripe/wg/active-wg Feel free to spread this call to whomever you think might find it interesting. For any questions, please write to firstname.lastname@example.org.
