Membership renewal or joining 2021

A new year is starting so it is the best time to join the UV4Plants Association for those who are not yet members, and the right time to renew membership for those already part of UV4Plants!

The Corona pandemic is also affecting our Association. Meetings were only possible online last year and this year it is not yet clear in which form meetings can take place.

Therefore we want to offer our members

1. to pay the full membership fee in exchange for membership for 2021 and 2022.
2. to pay half the membership fee for 2021.

Members who have already paid fall into category 1.
New members automatically fall into category 2.

Details about the updated registration form are available at this website under Rules, membership, and contacts. We are an international organization and warmly welcome members from all countries and regions of the world to join our friendly and open community.
