The setting up the India-EU Civil Society Internet Forum was envisaged in the India-EU Joint Action Plan adopted at the 6th India-EU Summit in September 2005. The site has been prepared by NASSCOM Foundation and is conceived as a simple and user friendly website. The primary objective of the internet forum is to give greater visibility to India-EU Round Table, to disseminate information on its work and to facilitate networking with civil society.

The address of the website iswww.india-eu.org.

The India-EU Round Table provides a forum for civil society cooperation meant to contribute to the enhancement of bilateral relations between India and the EU. The decision to set up the India-EU Round Table was taken at the Lisbon Summit of June 2000. Shri.N.N.Vohra, PM�s Special Representative to J&K is Indian Co-Chair of the Round Table. The first meeting of the India-EU Round Table was held in New Delhi in January 2001. The recommendations of the meetings of the Round Table are forwarded to the European Institutions and to the Government of India for consideration. The 10th meeting of the India-EU Round Table was held in Vienna on June 7-8, 2006. It focused on energy and social development issues. The next India-EU Round Table meeting will take place next month June 5-6 at New Delhi.
