NEW: Personal membership fee - €90 per year
Personal membership allows any individuals with interests in VPH research to join in, without requesting a substantial institutional support. Personal members will have the possibility to participate to all work groups the Institute is involved with such as the Policy Affairs WP, getting a privileged access to policy information and being involved in the drafting process of important documents, such as position statements or green paper. VPH personal members will also benefit of a €50 discount at VPH 2014.
NEW: Student membership fee - €10 per year
Student membership must be associated to a personal membership. To every personal membership up to six student memberships can be associated, with only 10 extra euro per student per year. Student memberships are nominal, last at most four years and decay if students relocate to another institution. VPH students will receive 20% discount of selected publications, such as:
