About EFCE

Founded in 1953, the EFCE currently comprises 36 Member Societies in 28 European countries. The Federation also works with Institutional Members from around the globe. In December 2014, the EFCE was officially set up and registered as a Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO) in the UK.

Its Scientific Groups (Working Parties and Sections) link almost 1000 experts from industry and academia.

The Federation's activities are determined by the Executive Board (charity trustees), while three General Secretariats share the different administrative tasks.
