For the third time, the Rob Blokzijl Foundation presents the Foundation's Award for outstanding contributions to the development of the Internet in the RIPE NCC Services region.
We would like to draw your attention to the Rob Blokzijl Award and invite you to make a nomination. The prize is awarded in honour of the co-founder and long-term chair of RIPE Rob Blokzijl, who passed way in 2015. Rob Blockzijl was a well-versed Internet pioneer, highly committed to advance the Internet with his professional knowledge.
The Award is given to persons who have made a particularly distinguished contribution to the development of the Internet in either a technical or operational capacity and, at the same time, supported and enabled others and passed on their knowledge. Nominations can be submitted until 29 October 2023 (23:59 UTC) to the Award Committee to nominations[at]rob-blokzijl-foundation[dot]org.
The recipient of the award will be announced during RIPE 87 in November in Rome. To learn more about the Rob Blokzijl Award and the nomination and selection procedure go to:
