An important change in ERCIM’s membership policy is coinciding with the creation of ERCIM AISBL.

For over twenty years, ERCIM has been a consortium of leading research institutions committed to cooperating for excellence in research. Focusing on information and communication science and technology (ICST) and related areas of mathematics, ERCIM has a successful track record of promoting ICST research and cooperation in Europe and beyond. ERCIM is now dropping its limitation of one member per country, allowing a small number of excellent research institutions in ICST per country to directly become members of ERCIM.

ERCIM opens to Multiple Members per Country

The ERCIM consortium is currently re-organising into a two-tier structure: a non-profit association (AISBL) open to any suitable institution based on criteria of excellence, and the current European Economic Interest Group (EEIG) composed of a few members which will act as the host of W3C Europe and the ERCIM office. The association will be able to drive the ERCIM mission without the current restriction of one member organisation per country.
