Types of Membership
As of 1 January 2016, a new membership fee scheme applies. The new scheme has been approved by Informatics Europe members at the 2015 AGA to better accommodate the range in department/faculty sizes and to reflect current economic parameters within Europe. Membership is annually paid.
Two factors determine the annual membership fee for academic members:
- Country zone: based on the latest available national GDP per capita, PPP (current international $). See list below.
- Size: number of permanent FTE Faculty teaching and doing research at the member institution (department/school/faculty/institute)
(GDP ≥ 35K)
(GDP 35 - 20 K)
(GDP ≤ 20K)
|Small (≤ 15)||1,100 EUR||800 EUR||550 EUR|
|Medium (16 ≤ 24)||1,600 EUR||1,100 EUR||800 EUR|
|Large (≥ 25)||2,200 EUR||1,600 EUR||1,100 EUR|
