"Euro-IX (European Internet Exchange Association) was formed in May 2001 with the intention to further develop, strengthen and improve the Internet Exchange Point (IXP) community.

A number of Internet Exchange Points recognised a need to combine their resources so as to co-ordinate technical standards across the continent, develop common procedures, and share and publish statistics and other information. This publishing of information would in turn give all interested parties a better insight into the world of IXPs.

Euro-IX Mission statement

Euro-IX is an association of European Internet Exchanges, promoting an open interchange of ideas and experiences, gained to mutual advantage of the membership, by offering fora, meetings, mailing lists and on-line resources. Euro-IX also gathers information on regulatory issues affecting member exchanges within the region and where appropriate from other jurisdictions that could potentially impact on the membership.

General meetings and fora will be held within the Euro-IX area but membership from other exchanges outside the region is encouraged and such members are welcome to attend our meetings; contribute to and benefit from our shared expertise and experiences. Euro-IX welcomes contact with other regional associations and pledges to liaise and cooperate with those that emerge." (
