EFI has two types of members: Member Countries and member organisations. The Member Countries are called ‘Members’ (shown on the map in dark blue colour) and the member organisations are called ‘Associate Members’ (the ones in Europe) and ‘Affiliate Members’ (the ones outside of Europe). These two types of members form the very core of the EFI network.
The member organisations include research institutes, universities, non-governmental organisations and industries.
The current EFI member organisations are shown on the map in light blue colour; the eight light blue dots in the upper-left corner symbolise the Affiliate Members outside of Europe.
Any organisation can apply for Associate or Affiliate membership, according to their geographical location. The membership applications are approved by the EFI Board.
