GEM offers flexible mechanisms to enable potential partners to contribute to its ongoing and future work programs. Partners and collaborators can enter into sponsorships, project partnerships and service agreements, and can select the level of engagement based on the needs and requirements.
GEM’s sponsorship structure and fees have been designed to incentivize participation of public and private organizations. Public Governors may propose to contribute directly to the work program via an in-kind project to offset the *GERD-based sponsorship contribution. The minimum fees in the table below apply only to sponsors who sign up for three years or more.
Sponsor Types and Contributions (2020 onwards)
Option 1: Small Business Advisor Sponsor - for businesses of <20 employees and revenue of < 3M euro per year. The fees are 35k euro per year for a minimum of three years. If the number of employees or revenue exceed the threshold amount in a given year, the fees for subsequent years increase to the Standard Advisor level of 75K euros/year. These criteria must hold for full duration of the sponsorship.
*Option 2: Start-up Business Advisor Sponsor - for businesses of <20 employees and revenue of < 3M euro per year that anticipate growth in subsequent years. The fees are 150K for three years, with contributions of 25K, 50K and 75K in respective years. If growth is not realized in a given year (i.e., does not exceed the employee and revenue limit), the fees for subsequent years revert to those for Small Business Advisor Sponsor (35,000 euro per year). These criteria must hold at start, commitment for 3 years.
Option 3: Shared Advisor Sponsor - for businesses of <20 employees and revenue of < 3M euro per year. The fees are 75K per year for three years pooled between up to three small business organizations. One organization is designated as the focal point for communication with GEM and participation in meetings. These criteria must hold for all partners for the full duration of the sponsorship.

Why we support GEM
Abhineet Gupta OneConcern
Our work with GEM will add value to the AI-based multi-hazard platform that we’ve developed for earthquakes and floods, so that communities can better prepare for and respond to these disasters.
GEM provides state-of-the-art science and software tools. We believe that the pioneering work done by GEM will lead to a new era of collaboration and transparency on seismic hazard and risk assessment.
Canada will remain committed to support GEM through development and enhancement of hazard and risk models, tools and data that are critical in formulating disaster risk reduction plans and strategies.
