EWMA Conference 2018

Partnership Characteristics & Procedures

The partner organisations of EWMA are divided into three partnership categories:

  • EWMA Cooperating Organisation
  • EWMA International Partner Organisation
  • EWMA Associated Organisation

Different characteristics and benefits apply to each partner category. The widest-ranging level of collaboration exists with the EWMA Cooperating Organisations who, through the annual Cooperating Organisation's Board meeting, are entitled to present and elect members of the EWMA Council as well as to other specific benefits (see list below).

While the close relation between EWMA and the EWMA Cooperating Organisation is a key principle of vital importance to EWMA it also entails the need for clear and comprehensive procedures on the integration of new Cooperating Organisations into the EWMA family.
