Various forms of membership
 
Direct members
A direct membership can be granted to organizations meeting a certain set of criteria, which accord with IASP’s definition of science and technology parks (STP’s) and/or NBIA’s definition of business incubators.
 
Associated members
An associated membership can be granted to organizations working within the same field as the other members, however with a structure that do not follow the complete set of criteria. An associated member must instead be considered to bring new value into the function of a technology and science park or a business incubator, as well as cooperating with one or more geographically close members of the association.
 
Associated members own the right to attend and express their opinion during meetings with the association. However, they do not own the right to participate in the association’s decision making.
 
New technology and science parks as well as business incubators which do not yet fulfill the complete set of criteria can be offered an associated membership until they do.
 
Members admission
 
A direct membership will include 1 vote per assembly and come with an admission of 20 000 SEK, i.e. 20 000 SEK for the company and an additional 20 000 SEK per legal entity.
 
A membership in Swedish Incubators & Science Parks costs 20 000 SEK per year. 500 SEK is a member’s fee whereas the remaining 19500 SEK (excluding tax) is a service cost (including value added tax).
