You are interested in becoming an ECRA member?

ECRA shapes emerging research topics through an efficient network of European research organisations and provides a knowledge base for future mitigation and adaptation measures.

Who can become ECRA Member?

  • European research institutions can become officially an ECRA Member (Partner, Participant, or Associate)
  • Scientists working in climate related fields, who are once active in ECRA can become ECRA fellows. Collaboration in ECRA best works for scientists whose research institution is already officially involved in ECRA and ECRA member.

How to become ECRA Member?

It is easy to become an ECRA fellow. Collaboration begins with participation in ECRA Workshops, which are open to all climate scientists. Each year several ECRA Workshops on four topics will be organised: (1) Arctic Change, (2) High Impact events and Change, (3) Sea Level Change and Coastal Impacts, (4) Hydrological Cycle and Change. The ECRA membership is first step to become involved in the ECRA network.
