EEG Memorandum on Membership

In January 2017, the European Expert Group on the Transition from Institutional to Community-based Care (EEG) adopted the Memorandum on Membership to set out the criteria and expertise required to be an EEG member.

Full members undertake to participate fully in the EEG’s activities and, where possible, to contribute financially, according to their means.
Observing members can be invited to participate in EEG meetings and activities on an ad hoc basis, and to sign EEG position papers or join initiatives. They do not vote on membership applications and their logo does not appear on documents produced by the EEG, except those to which they contributed. Observer members must have:
