EAGE Economic Hardship Programme
EAGE recognizes the current challenging status of the industry and, priding itself on the inclusive character of the Association, now has a special economic hardship assistance programme in place to reach out to its members. The programme consists of two elements: a membership fee waiver and special discounts on public EAGE short courses.

EAGE Short Course discount
EAGE aims to assist its long-term members who are currently unemployed by providing contributions towards educational programmes. Under this element of the EAGE Economic Hardship Programme, currently unemployed members can attend public EAGE short courses for a discounted course fee equal to 75 euros for either one- or two-day course. The discounted registration fee is the same as in another supported programme – EAGE Education Tours, where everyone can benefit from a discounted fee.
