Organisation Membership Beneficiaries

This type of membership is directed for national sleep societies, research and scientific institutes, corporate entities and other organisations. Today, ESRS reaches all corners of the world, not only Europe. Hence, even if your organisation is not European-based, it can become an ESRS member.

Join ESRS network and boost your organisation visibility and connections:

  • If you are an European national sleep society, you can apply to become an associate of the Assembly of National Sleep Societies (ANSS), and gain a stronger voice in the development of sleep medicine and sleep research.

  • We welcome any organisation that desires to establish synergies with ESRS,  and shares the goal to promote all aspects of research on sleep and sleep-related areas to improve the care of patients. You are invited to become ESRS corporate members.

  • Companies and non-European national sleep societies are also welcome to become ESRS supporting members.

Associate Society Membership Details

One representative from each National sleep society (NSS) will become a part of the Assembly of National Sleep Societies (ANSS).

The ANSS determines its own articles based on the following principles:

  • The ANSS meets at least every second year during the ESRS congress.
  • The ANSS elects an executive committee of 5 representatives from national sleep societies. The committee designates a chair and a co-chair.
  • This ANSS executive committee proposes one member to the ESRS Board as a full board member.
  • The ANSS fixes annual fees to be paid by every associate society member. These fees, paid to the ESRS treasurer, are used for expenses of the ANSS.

Applications of national sleep societies are directed to the ESRS board; decisions regarding membership are made on an individual basis.

Individuals who are members of their national sleep societies are automatically Associate Individual Members of ESRS and receive the ESRS monthly newsletter through their national sleep society. To profit from full membership benefits including voting rights, discounted programming and access to the Journal of Sleep Research (JSR), Associate Individual Members should also become Full Individual Members of the ESRS.
