Membership Fee Policy

The PRIDE-network is aiming at attracting professionals, independently of their position, status or seniority, who are actively involved in doctoral education in their respective institutions. The PRIDE-network depends, for its success, on its members.

Membership Options

To facilitate the widest participation, we offer membership at two levels:

  1. Organizational membership at 500 EUR: aimed at organizations where more than 3 people are likely to be PRIDE members. Organizational membership covers up to eight staff members from a particular member organization. Organizational members hold 3 votes at General Assemblies and
  2. Individual membership at 150 EUR: aimed at individuals or small organizations where the number of potential PRIDE members does not justify the expense of an Institutional membership. Ordinary members have one vote at General Assemblies.

Upgrade? You can upgrade your individual membership to an Organizational membership within a memership term. To do this use the Membership Application Form.

Moreover, we offer two levels of discount fees for members from individual countries by applying the Marie Skłodowska - Curie Actionscountry correction coefficient as shown on Page 71, table 2 as follows:  if the coefficient is between 60% and 90%, we offer a 25% discount (level1 ), if the coefficient of the country is below 60%, we offer a 50% discount (level 2), otherwise no discount is applied. The discount policy applies to the membership fee only, but not to other fees for events etc. It is a voluntary offer from us, which can also change in the future.
