ESMO Developing Countries Fee Structure

ESMO is committed to ensuring that ESMO membership is affordable to all.

We are pleased to offer members working in low or lower-middle income countries a reduced membership fee of 25 Euros; and a fee of 50 Euros to those in upper-middle income countries.

This 'two tier' structure uses the World Bank classification of low, lower-middle and upper-middle countries based on the Gross National Income (GNI) per capita and calculated using the World Bank Atlas method.

ESMO annual membership fee World Bank country classification
25 EUR Low income: countries with a GNI per capita of $1,045 or less
Lower-middle income: countries with a GNI per capita of $1,046 to $4,125
50 EUR Upper-middle income: countries with a GNI per capital of $4,126 to $12,735

The reduced membership fees of 25 and 50 euros provides access to all membership benefits with the following exceptions:

  • Online-only subscription to Annals of Oncology (i.e. members will not receive the print issue each month)
