National Societies

Together to promote important initiatives that benefit the European nephrological community

Our collaboration

ERA is highly committed to strengthening its relations with the National Societies of Nephrology within its geographical area (Full Members) and also outside Europe and the countries bordering Europe and the Mediterranean Sea (Associate Members).

These represent their nation’s physicians and scientists dedicated to studying chronic kidney diseases. They work to promote patient care, advance medical research, and enlarge their community.

ERA officers regularly meet National Societies’ representatives during the National Presidents’ meeting, traditionally organised during the Annual Congress.

ERA National Society Grant

ERA National Society Grant
