Academic Institutional Membership
Academic Institutional Membership is open to acdemic/educational institutions whether based in Europe or elsewhere.
For non-academic institutions, such as stock exchanges, regulators, investors, companies, rating agencies, stock price index producers and law firms, please see the page for Institutional Membership.
The main benefit of ECGI academic institutional membership is access to leading research from prominent scholars around the globe. This is distributed by alerts when new papers are published, event reports, and other communications. ECGI is also known for organising high quality events around the world. Our roundtable series is specifically focused on developing engaging events for our institutional members (academic and corporate).
Other benefits include:
- Belonging to a global network that is a home for all with an interest in corporate governance.
- Receiving communications regarding academic papers, announcements, calls for papers and events relating to corporate governance – multiple faculty members can receive these communications.
- Attendance at the Annual Members’ Conference (no charge), including a lecture, dinner and more.
- Priority for speaking opportunities, sponsorship opportunities, or attendance at private events.
- A dedicated profile page on the ECGI website which has over 5,000 monthly users and also a dedicated profile page for each individual faculty member. Faculty who are not ECGI research members can also receive their own profile on the website.
- Affiliation with ECGI which is a mark of quality that is recognised internationally.
Access to Events
A list of past and future events is available here.
Many of our events are by invitation only (particularly the academic conferences), however if there are any events that you as an academic institutional member are particularly interested in, you can contact us at any time and we will investigate the possibility of attendance. We will also share materials (papers, slides, videos) from our events with our members whenever possible.
The Annual Members’ Meeting usually takes place in Spring (as an example, see the 2018 event programme on the ECGI website here). All members are welcome to attend this event (free of charge) and it is a good opportunity to meet with other members, learn more about ECGI’s plans for the future, and engage with other leading scholars and practitioners.
