Has there been a Sunrise period for .eu IDNs?

The decision to launch IDNs without a Sunrise period was made based on the results of extensive preparation. This included papers drafted by the EURid IDNs Advisory Board and two surveys that EURid ran in 2008:

A survey among CENTR members

The results of the survey showed no particular trend in favour of sunrise or landrush when introducing IDNs. The registries who opted for one solution over another were motivated by internal considerations, some of which were linked to the local Internet communities and/or their organisational profile.

A public, online survey

Results showed that the public did not have a clear, strong wish for .eu to have a Sunrise period when IDNs are introduced.
