ESVDC Full Members are researchers working in an academic environment or a recognised research center. May also be admitted practitioners with a proven research record, who are working in collaboration with an existing research center.

ESVDC Associate Members are young researchers, e.g. PhD-students, or practitioners starting research activities and working under supervision of a research center.

Requests to become a member must be addressed to the ESVDC Executive Committee, using the appropriate form for either full or associate members. The Executive Committee may ask for supplementary recommandations or informations, and then decides on the type of membership and admittance. The Executive Committee informs the General Assembly accordingly.
