Membership of the Society is open to any qualified worker in a discipline relevant to prevention, including all European and international researchers, professionals, practitioners, policy makers and students who share the Society’s aims. Although we are primarily a European Society we encourage membership from all countries, particularly those professionals who wish to develop collaborative links with European researchers.
Current EUSPR membership benefits include
- Inclusion in the only European-wide network of prevention researchers and other experts

- Invitations to EUSPR meetings, workshops and summer schools

European Public Health Association (EUPHA) affiliation benefits
EUSPR’s affiliation with the European Public Health Association, (EUPHA) has led to the following benefits for EUSPR members:
- Access to the electronic version of the European Journal of Public Health, a bimonthly scientific journal with an impact factor of 2.516.
- Monthly electronic EUPHA newsletter
- EUPHA book club where you can buy books published by EUPHA’s partner (Oxford University Press) at 20% discount

Once your EUSPR membership fee has been received your contact information will be forwarded to EUPHA. Who will send you an email with your EUPHA membership details including login details for the EUPHA website where all the affiliation benefits can be accessed.
As the EUSPR develops, we hope to expand the range of benefits on offer. Membership fees will be used to cover the costs of development of the Society, particularly with regard to administration costs, development of the website, and the organisation of the annual conferences.
The term of EUSPR membership runs from January 1st to December 31st of each calendar year. Therefore, EUSPR membership is granted for the calendar year in which the fees are paid, additional payments will grant membership for subsequent years. If you wish your membership payment to apply to another calendar year please let us know when the payment is made (e.g. payment made in the 2017 calendar year although the member prefers to be granted membership for the 2018 calendar year).
While registration for the annual EUSPR Conference is open, there will be the option to purchase membership with your conference registration, in one payment which provides membership until the end of the following year (two years membership for the price of one). Details for new members and for members renewing their membership.
A reminder to renew membership will be sent to all members at the beginning of each calendar year. Membership fees have been determined in correspondence with a poll among potential members and they are based upon the country in which a member is employed. The fee to be paid is determined by the average academic salary in each country, adjusted for the cost of living. Accordingly, we have three membership fee levels. Membership benefits are the same across all fee levels.

- Level B fees are currently €48 per year. Countries include: Brazil, Croatia, Czech Republic, Hungary, Lithuania, and Turkey.
- Level C fees are currently €33 per year. Countries include: Bulgaria, Estonia, Latvia, Poland, Romania, and Slovakia. This category also includes countries of North Africa and the Middle East (excluding Israel).
- Students from any country attending a registered institution and studying for a degree may be eligible to pay the lowest fee (Level C). Please note: Student members are not eligible to stand for election to the EUSPR Board although we have representation from our Early Career researcher group..
Please contact us to determine if you are eligible for student fees.
