Cooperation with EuroCloud
Membership and partnership of EuroCloud confers both benefits and rights, but also carries obligations. Delivery of EuroCloud’s work depends on effective cooperation between EuroCloud Europe and its partner organizations – a value chain rooted in commitment and collaboration.
Types of cooperation
There are five types of membership or cooperation with EuroCloud Europe.
- Full Members
- Associated Members
- Supporting Members
To ensure that this value chain works effectively it is thus necessary to ensure that all the partners of EuroCloud Europe are active and working in cooperation with the central and other local EuroCloud organizations.
Only national EuroCloud Associations are eligible for full membership.
Full members are the only Members allowed to vote and participate in the General Assembly, to the exclusion of Supporting and Associate Members. However, in order to be admitted to vote and participate in the General Assembly, any new Full Member (hereinafter referred as the “Applicant Full Member”) will have to submit itself to a probationary period of two (2) years starting from their application to Eurocloud Europe.
All Full Members will provide the name of the Designated Representative for the Council to the Managing Director of the Association, hereby called “Council Member”, which by default is the Chairman of the Full Member.
The yearly membership fee for full members is set at 2.000,- per year and is due annually in January. The yearly membership fee for Applicant Full Member is set at 1.500,- per year and is due annually in January.

An EuroCloud Europe partner organisation is not a member but participates either actively in one of EuroCloud’s streams or in an exchange of information (free of obligations and of any commercial interest) that has been agreed between the two partner organizations.
Sponsors support EuroCloud Europe’s activity actively by providing access to relevant information, projects or events and with an annual sponsorship fee. The sponsor gets restricted access to selected EuroCloud Streams.
