The forums in Drupal look good enough for the purpose and the web folks like the platform. Looks like RIPE Labs will be launched based on Drupal.
Long before this sparkly site came along, the team with the ideas tested out other platforms and solutions to deliver RIPE Labs.
Finally got everyone convinced of Robert's idea. I am excited. With RIPE Labs we will get more people involved in innovation at the RIPE NCC again ...

Robert has gotten the RIPE Labs idea down as an outline now. Much discussion with him and in Science Group. Will present to senior management shortly.
