The European Long-term Ecosystem Research Network (LTER-Europe) is a regional network of ILTER. National networks adopted by ILTER automatically become members of LTER-Europe unless explicitly excluded under the terms provided by LTER-Europe By-laws.
Applications for membership may also be made directly to LTER-Europe. They should be supported by a national public institution (e.g. a National Academy of Sciences, national funding agency such as a National Research Council, or government institution such as a Ministry of Environment). A letter requesting admission from the national public institution should address the criteria mentioned in LTER Europe By-laws and must be sent to the Chair of LTER-Europe.
