The cooperation between the partner organisations AEC and ELIA has been continuously growing in the past few years and has increasingly manifested in concrete projects and in advocacy actions at European level.

Since 2019, Higher Arts Education institutions that are members of both networks can apply for a 10 % discount on their membership fees with both AEC and ELIA. For members applying for the first time, the discount is available only on request and not automatically included in the annual membership invoices.

Institutions that were eligible to get the discount in previous years and would like to apply again are kindly asked to send a confirmation email with the updated number of students to both organisations.

Please note institutions that are members of both AEC and ELIA may apply to both offices to require the double membership discount by 1 April at the latest. More information on the application procedure and the conditions is available in this document.
