Pelagios is a formal network of equal and independent Partners who coordinate their work together. To become a Partner, all institutions, projects and/or individuals have to do is to agree to contribute to ongoing work that falls under the aegis of one or more of the Network's Activities. Partnerships are defined by a Memorandum of Understanding, a non-legally binding document in which the prospective Partner outlines their contribution in consultation with the Network.
To discuss becoming a Partner of the Pelagios Network, simply get in touch with the coordinators of the relevant Activity via our Contact page.
