Initiatives

.eu Academy

Putting into practice over 50 years of cumulative experience in the domain name system industry, EURid opened the .eu Academy in early 2015. The initiative has as its main objective the goal to contribute to the education of industry peers, registrars and future generations on the basics of the Internet, its history, functioning, and marketing, administrative, security and legal facets. The Academy’s motto ‘we'll learn together’ is the basis for various actions planned.

Since 2015, we have been providing in-house or external training and traineeships to university students and members of the DNS community.

Anyone interested in knowing more about any of the aforementioned areas or any other DNS-related matters can drop us a message at [email protected]. We will get back to you and design a training programme together that can support your needs.

Web Awards

The .eu Web Awards are an online competition, launched in 2014, to acknowledge the best websites using the .eu, .ею or .ευ extensions in five dynamic categories: Leaders, Rising stars, Laurels, House of .eu, Better World.

Over the years, we have seen and enhanced the visibility of hundreds of beautiful, innovative and impactful websites through the .eu Web Awards.

You can read more on our official Web Awards page.

Art Competition

The SAFEonLINE Art Competition complements EURid’s educational and awareness activities in the field of online security with a uniquely creative outlook.

In our first competition in 2019, we invited young artists, all high-school students, to depict any aspect of cybersecurity and Internet safety in a poster of their own design. By inviting high-school artists to this competition, we intended to attract their attention, and the attention of the adults in their lives – their parents and teachers – to the security challenges of the modern digital world.

Code Week

Code Week is a grassroots initiative bringing coding and digital literacy to European citizens in a fun and engaging way. We are pleased to have been part of this initiative since 2016. Aiming to make a beneficial impact on today’s youth, we are organising more and more free workshops and interactive sessions for children and teachers to take part in across Europe – all in an effort to teach them the fundamentals of coding, programming and robotics.

Industry events

As active member of the internet community we find it important to be present at both smaller and larger industry events, sharing our knowledge and catching up with industry trends. Throughout the years, we have regularly participated in several events around Europe, such as DigitalK, Digital Assembly and Cloudfest, among others.
