European Research Network on Philanthropy


Welcome to the community of European philanthropy researchers 

The European Research Network on Philanthropy (ERNOP) is an association that was founded in January 2008 by collaborating philanthropy researchers in Europe to advance, coordinate and promote philanthropy research in Europe. Currently, around 250 members from 25 European countries have joined ERNOP.  ERNOP is also open to non-European philanthropy researchers and practitioners. ERNOP members are represented in the most important journals related to philanthropy and have good relationships with other (global) research networks such as ISTR and ARNOVA and collaborate with other global and European professional philanthropy networks.
