What are the criteria for Affiliated Partners?

There are no specific criteria of affiliation to an ERN. It is a competence of Member States to designate their potential affiliated partners.

According to the Board of Member States: ERN applicants will be encouraged to liaise with National authorities, where appropriate, to identify a list of potential affiliated partners, for collaboration with the network from the outset. However, for all potential affiliated partners the affiliation process will take place only after the approval of the ERN by the Board and following the formal designation of each of the affiliated partners by its national authorities.
