Full membership or associate membership?

Full members and associate members are all entitled to play an active role on the boards of the TMF and participate in the passing of resolutions by the association's bodies.

Full members are also entitled to be principal applicants for TMF-funded projects and hence exert a major influence on the development of joint solutions. In addition, full members can nominate candidates for the Board of Directors and hence strategically influence the work and ongoing development of the TMF at a central point.

The membership fee is € 20,000 per year for full members and € 6,000 per calendar year for associate members (no pro rata fees).
