Full Members are those members living in Europe, in Countries bordering Europe as well as Countries bordering the Mediterranean Sea. Included in their annual membership fee is a free online and/or print subscription to NDT (Nephrology Dialysis Transplantation) and CKJ (Clinical Kidney Journal – former NDT-Plus) – not given/sent to members who pay the “Reduced Fee”; access to the protected libraries of the ERA-EDTA website (including ERA-EDTA CME Course Presentations); 25% discount OUP books; vote and being elected for office in ERA-EDTA Council and vote during the General Assembly.

They pay the same annual membership fees as Full Members.
Both Associate and Full members who are 40 years old or younger can apply for Junior membership status. This allows them to receive all the advantages described above, including a free online subscription to NDT and CKJ, by paying a special annual membership fee of EUR 50.00.
