The Pan-European dialogue on Internet governance (EuroDIG) is an open platform for informal and inclusive discussions on public policy issues related to Internet Governance (IG).

First organised in 2008 by several organisations, government representatives and experts, it fosters dialogue and collaboration with the Internet community on public policy for the Internet. Culminating in an annual conference that takes place in a different European city. EuroDIG ‘Messages’ are prepared and presented to the Internet Governance Forum (IGF).

EuroDIG is supported by a group of institutional partners (in alphabetical order):


The main aim of EuroDIG is to promote the engagement of Europeans in multistakeholder dialogue in order to share their expertise and best practice and, where possible, identify common ground. This enables EuroDIG to pull together national perspectives and to apply and shape European values and views regarding the Internet. It is the place to start and to facilitate a discussion not to finalise it and therefore a decision shaping not a decision making initiative.


In 2005 heads of states decided to invite the UN Secretary General to convene a “Internet Governance Forum” (IGF) for a multistakeholder policy dialogue on Internet issues. EuroDIG – as regional European IGF – is part of this ecosystem.

Who we are

A European-Swiss not-for-profit association according to Swiss Civil Code, Art. 60 to 79, was created on 15 June 2012 in Stockholm, under the name “EuroDIG Support Association” (hereafter “the Association”).

Hosting EuroDIG

For each annual cycle, we seek for committed partners within Europe to host EuroDIG. They can include organisations from any stakeholder group such as government, civil society, technical community or industry.


EuroDIG is financed by donations from international organisations and companies. Each year we are reaching out to donors, inviting them to contribute to the process and the annual event whilst underlining their commitment to the European dialogue in general.
