The EMA service has over 1500 subscribers, and is regularly being sent on the 1st and 15th of every month. While most information is gathered through relevant websites and partner-sharing networks, we welcome your contributions as a way to make the exchange of information, support of joint initiatives, project proposals, and sharing of resources more effective.
