In remembrance of Internet Pioneer, founder and Chair of RIPE for 25 years, Postel Award recipient, and friend, Rob Blokzijl the RIPE NCC set up the “Rob Blokzijl Foundation”. The foundation recognises those who made substantial and sustained technical and operational contributions to the development of the Internet in the RIPE NCC service region, or supported or enabled others with the development of the Internet in the RIPE NCC service region.

The Rob Blokzijl Award will be awarded for the first time during RIPE 76 in May 2018. This is a Good Thing on so many levels.

The call for nominations is now open. The deadline is 16 March 2018 23:59 UTC.
