The vision of the EMS is to build a network of the entire community involved in meteorology and related fields in Europe. With this goal in mind the possibility for organisations to join the EMS as Associate Members has been created.
Any body with an interest in supporting the aims of the society may be eligible for Associate Membership. Such bodies include non-European Meteorological Societies, National Meteorological and Hydrological Services, research and education institutes and departments, companies with interests in meteorology, related sciences and their applications, and Europe-wide bodies with similar interests.
Currently EMS has 30 Associate Members, the latest to join were EIG EUMETNET and meteoblue ag in spring 2020 and the Danisch Meteorological Insitute, host of the EMS Annual Meeting 2019 in Copenhagen, in autumn 2019.
