On 17th July 2013, Euro-IX signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with The Internet Society (ISOC). This new partnership has been received with great enthusiasm from our members. Both parties recognize their shared interest in:

- Activities will be defined and agreed in writing beforehand, all collaboration is voluntary by both parties
