Partnership is open to those parties in and outside ILEP that are committed to contribute to the mission and running of the LRI. Each LRI partner commits an annual contribution to the joint LRI research fund with a minimum of €100,000 and pays an equal share of the LRI running costs. Any institute, department or organisation that is interested in joining the LRI, but is unable to meet these criteria, can become an Associate Partner, contributing a smaller amount, or co-funding partner. Associate Partners are welcome to attend LRI meetings as observers, but have no voting rights.

Become a partner

Together we can create opportunities for innovative research, build capacity, promote innovation, increase effectiveness of services and address the remaining challenges in leprosy. Join us in the fight against leprosy and its consequences! We offer different partnership possibilities. Research institutes, NGOs, foundations, trusts, etc. are welcome to join.
