ELI Hubs

The concept of establishing national Hubs emerged in Dublin, in the course of an ELI event there on 11 June 2012, and was well received. At the ELI General Assembly on 29 September 2012, the decision to establish national Hubs, with the aim of facilitating and widening ELI’s outreach to prospective Members and institutions as well as increasing the Institute’s visibility, was made. On 5 December 2012, the French Hub – the first ELI Hub – was launched in Paris. 

Today, ELI Hubs are a practical means through which ELI Members can meet closer to home, communicate in their native language, discuss current or upcoming projects, and generate ideas for future ELI activities. ELI is committed to the principle of collaborative working and strongly encourages Hub activities, as Hubs serve as a two-way communication channel between ELI and its Members.

Upon joining ELI, individuals automatically become Members of the Hub of their country of residence or seat. If interested in establishing a Hub, please contact the ELI Secretariat.

ELI currently as 14 Hubs and is delighted to announce that discussion on the launch of Asia Pacific, Dutch, Greek, Romanian and Serbian Hubs are underway.
