RACI (the RIPE Academic Cooperation Initiative) gives students and researchers the opportunity to present their work in front of some the leading technical figures in the Internet world, receive feedback on their research from experts and have their work published on the RIPE Labs website for community feedback. The initiative is coordinated with the RIPE Programme Committee to allow the RACI academics to present their research at a RIPE Meeting.
