The 5G Infrastructure Association (5G IA) is committed to foster 5G research, development and deployment in Europe. At the same time, the 5G IA is preparing for the next chapter in the mobile communications story with the new ‘Smart Networks and Services’ Partnership, which will set the foundations for 6G (for more information: https://6g-ia.eu/sns-horizon-europe/).
The 5G Infrastructure Association is open for membership applications from relevant organisations (including associations) in the ICT sector.
Membership of the 5G Infrastructure Association is open to and limited to entities with legal personality, that
- have a registered seat in the Member States, Candidate States and Associated Countries of the European Union; and
- support the mission and vision of the Association; and
- have research and development activities in the Member States, Candidate States and Associated Countries of the European Union.
According to the revised 5G Infrastructure Association Statutes, organisations meeting the criteria above can apply for membership by filling out the form below. Membership applications can be submitted anytime.
Association Fiscal Year:
The Association fiscal year has to date started on July 1 and finishes on June 30 of the following year. However, to better align with the fiscal planning of the framework programme and to align the membership year with the financial year of most member organisations, the 5G IA general assembly has decided to change the financial year of the Association to match the calendar year i.e. from January to December each year.
As a consequence of this decision, the 2020/2021 financial year of the Association will be extended to 18 Months to the end of 2021 and an interim Membership model for the period July 2021 to December 2021 needs to be implemented.
Interim Membership Fees July 2021 to December 2021:
These interim membership fees will ensure membership continuity for the period from when the 20/21 membership ends until the new membership year 2022 starts: Q3 & Q4 2021.
For the four types of members of the Association: Industry, SME, Research, Association. The interim membership fees are:
- Full Industry members 7000.- €
- Full SME members 2000.- €
- Full Research members 2000.- €
- Full Association Members 2000.- €
These interim fees reflect an increase on previous years as the first requirements to fund the SNS JU office will emerge in this period.
- New Members joining the Association from 1 October 2021 until end December 2021 pay 50% of the interim membership fee.
Annual Membership Fees 2022:
The membership fees for 2022 have yet to be finalised by the General Assembly – the ambition is to increase the overall membership and grow the membership community to allow the membership fee increases to be at the lowest level possible while ensuring the industry share of the SNS JU office costs are secured.
There are four types of members of the Association: Industry, SME, Research, Association. The annual membership fees are:
- Full Industry members TBD.- €
- Full SME members TBD.- €
- Full Research members TBD.- €
- Full Association Members TBD.- €
From 2022 on, the Association fiscal year will start on the 1st January and will finish on the 31st December of the same year.
