How to Join
The membership of the network is open to those organisations, primarily public ones, but also from the civil socity that share the objectives of network.
As the statute points out those eligible to apply are:
Regions, county councils, municipalities, associations of local and regional authorities.
The regional governments, the provinces, the municipalities, the local authorities in their associated forms in Emilia-Romagna, as well as the same institutions of other Italian regions.
In Italy and Sweden:
Subjects from the civil society who agree to the aims and purpose of the Network, including educational institutions at all levels.
Following the increasing number of contacts with organisations from other countries in the European Union the General Assembly of the Network has decided, as from the spring of 2009, to give the opportunity to those that want to establish more structured relations with the network and its members to become Partners of the Network. This allows regions, counties, provinces, municipalities, associations of local and regional authorities, as well as subjects from the civil society, from EU countries who agree to the aims and purpose of the Network, including educational institutions at all levels, to participate on a regular basis to all the activities of SERN and contribute to its development.
