Membership assumes acceptance of the goals of ECHA. Individuals of all nationalities can become full members, and organisations of all nationalities can become corporate members. Full members are encouraged to support the ECHA partnership programme (i.e., by paying the annual fee on behalf of persons who are unable to pay the fees themselves).

Full ECHA membership (60 EUR/year; about 71 USD) has several benefits, such as:

  • a hard copy of the two issues of ECHA’s scientific journal, High Ability Studies (please see the content of the latest issue) which has an official price of 155 USD/year
  • the Spring and the Autumn issues of ECHA News as a pdf file to your email address as well as actual news by email
  • access to the intranet site of ECHA containing documents (e.g. memos of meetings, reports, etc.) and other information for members only
  • last but not least a significant discount at the registration of the ECHA Conferences (the next Conference will be betweent August 8-11 in Dublin), which is comparable (or currently even more than) to your annual membership fee.

The number of ECHA membership benefits are increasing from year-to-year.

ECHA offers a discounted membership fee of 30 EUR for students, which contains all benefits above but not High Ability Studies. However, interested students may order the journal for the nominal price of 27 EUR (equivalent of 31 USD) instead of the official price of 155 USD.

Your school/institution/NGO/company may also become a corporate member for 130 EUR/year enjoying all benefits above and having entitled for two conference participation discounts (having a current value of 140 EUR).

ECHA offers several possibilities to become a member. The most comfortable way is to register online. To use this possibility, use the Online Registration Form, where you will be directed to secure credit card membership fee payment after filling in the Form. You may also pay the membership we via bank transfer.
