Who can join Euro-CNS?

Membership of Euro-CNS is open to National Societies of Neuropathology in the European Community. If a European national or regional Society joins Euro-CNS, all its individual members will automatically become collective members of Euro-CNS.

National Societies of future member countries of the European Community are also welcome to participate in Euro-CNS as associated societies.

Membership is also possible for individuals outside Europe.  Please see the information below.


The fee is 30 Euro per member per year. Fees are collected by the National Societies. It includes free online access to Clinical Neuropathology.

Since 2018, members of national or regional societies of neuropathology affiliated with Euro-CNS, have free access to the online Journal. If you are a member and do not have access, please contact your National/ Regional Society of Neuropathology for the codes.

Outside Europe

Neuropathologists (or those with an interest in the field) who cannot become a member of a European national society, or who are employed outside Europe, may apply for corresponding  membership. Please send your request and your curriculum vitae to the Euro-CNS Executive Office. The Membership Committee (2 delegates from the Executive Committee) will judge your application.

The annual individual membership fee in 2024 is 120 Euro and covers both Euro-CNS membership and online access to the Euro-CNS Journal ‘Clinical Neuropathology‘. The fee is 159 Euro if you would like to receive the hard copy issues of Clinical Neuropathology

Discount for emerging countries
For individuals in emerging countries who are not a member of a European Society, we offer a reduced fee of 84 Euro that includes the Euro-CNS member fee and online access to Clinical Neuropathology. If, in addition to online access, you wish to receive a hard copy of the Journal by post, the fee is 120 Euro/year.  The journals are sent by regular post and, depending on the destination, they may experience issues with the delivery.

To determine eligibility for these reduced fees, we use the World Bank Classifications of low and middle-income countries.
