EAS is a non-profit organization. However, there are costs associated with producing and maintaining these resources. Although it would be wonderful if all resources could be provided free of charge it is necessary to cover these expenses. EAS has designed subscription packages that offer value for the money and often the individual benefits included in these packages tend to be more expensive when purchased separately outside of subscription. To ensure that accessing resources remains affordable preferential rates on subscription are offered several discounts.

EAS Full Individual subscription costs €60 (or €30 for Student or <36 yo) per year. This is paid individually. All the benefits we provide you with this type of subscription you can find here: Membership – EAS (eas-society.org) 

EAS Affiliated National Society subscription’s cost is based on World Bank Group country classifications by income to give a fair National Society subscription fee for each country.
