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.
