EAGE Economic Hardship Programme

EAGE recognizes the current challenging status of the industry and, priding itself on the inclusive character of the Association, now has a special economic hardship assistance programme in place to reach out to its members. The programme consists of three elements: a membership fee waiver, registration fee waivers for the EAGE Annual Conference and other EAGE events, and special discounts on public EAGE courses.

Contribution towards EAGE educational programmes

EAGE aims to assist its long-term members who are currently unemployed by providing contributions towards educational programmes. Under this element of the EAGE Economic Hardship Programme, currently unemployed members can attend public EAGE courses - including 1 and 2-day classroom courses, IOSC (Interactive Online Short Courses), self-paced and extensive online courses - for a discounted course fee equal to 75 euros. The discounted registration fee is the same as in another supported programme - the EAGE Education Tours - where everyone can benefit from a discounted fee.
