Why become an ESSA Associated Partner?

The project has several work strands in which your organisation can get involved and benefit, free of charge. You can decide to directly contribute to our activities, give some of your time and expertise to review what we deliver, or simply give us a helping hand to promote our activities. Our cooperation can take many forms but here is to give you an idea of what we offer:

  • Named as Associated Partner with logo on the ESSA website
  • Opportunity to help shape an ESSA event session your organisation representative will be participating in
  • Exclusive opportunity to showcase your organisation’s work in an opinion piece published on the ESSA blog. Form is flexible but must be approved by ESSA
  • Opportunity to access first-hand information and knowledge produced by ESSA before public release
  • Access to ESSA Media Kit to promote the Alliance
  • Receive regular information briefs on our project progress and take part in periodical online meetings with other associated partners
  • Opportunity to take part in ongoing ESSA work strands and give your perspectives
