The European Membrane Society, founded in 1982, is an international non-profit organization whose aim is to promote cooperation between scientists and engineers involved in Research and Development in the field of synthetic membranes and membrane processes. The society currently has 600+ members from almost 50 countries worldwide. Its main activities are the organization of scientific conferences such as the Euromembrane series, Summer Schools (35 organized so far) and the International Congress on Membranes & Membrane Processes (organized in a carrousel between the European Membrane Society, the North American Membrane Society and the Aseanian Membrane Society). Every year, the society gives an average of 30 000 € to sponsor several scientific conferences by awarding students with travel grants and prizes for best presentations, as well as by offering free conference registration fee to young researchers and a best paper award. The European Membrane Society is also a founding member of the World Association of Membrane Societies.

The Membrane Society of Australasia (MSA) Society aims to represent and promote the activities in membrane science and technology both in the research and industrial sectors. In 2009, the MSA was founded with the goal bringing together key academics, industrial professionals, and emerging membranologists to further membrane science and technology within Australasia. Our vision is to be the nexus of membrane science and technology activity, to promote collaborative engagements across the community to disseminate membrane technology to end users and to capture current research and industry involvement and highlight future trends. The MSA is a founding member of the World Association of Membrane Societies (WA-MS, http://www.wa-ms.org/) and Aseanian Membrane Society (AMS, http://www.ams-membrane.net/).

The Polish Membrane Society, founded in 2011, is a non-profit organization. Its aim is to promote cooperation between scientists and industry. At present, there are over 60 members involved in the Society's activities. Every two years, two key events happen. The Polish Membrane Society organizes: one, the international conference MEMPEP; two, summer schools (provided mostly in English). Largely, the Polish Membrane Society spends their financial income on awards for young scientists to celebrate their scientific achievements. More information can be found at: www.ptmem.eu.
