EERA membership is made up of more than 20 national and regional Educational Research Associations from all parts of Europe. It is governed by the Council and the Executive Committee. The academic work is organised in thematic networks. From 1994 to 2008 EERA was constituted as a Charity under British Law and was based in Scotland. Since 2008 EERA has been based in Berlin, Germany and is constituted as a “Verein” (i.e. Charity under German Law)
EERA is dependent on the participation of the national associations to take forward its mission of promoting educational research in Europe and of fostering cooperation between associations of educational researchers.
