Each member organisation of the ICRP provides support for the costs of maintaining the partnership. ICRP member organisations vary considerably in their overall size and in the size of their research portfolios. Annual membership costs are tiered according to the size of the organisation and vary from $500 to $30,000 per annum. Please see our Membership Guide (PDF - 1 MB) for more information.
