CIGRE Regions

According to CIGRE Statutes (Article 17), National Committees may come together to form a Region, which is designed to enhance technical cooperation between countries and to promote and develop CIGRE.


Geographical proximity is the primary motive for forming a Region, but other situations can be accommodated when they align with the basic objectives, i.e.:

  • Contribute to the activities of the Study Committees, addressing and developing local issues;
  • Organise Regional Meetings or other local meetings (Colloquia…);
  • Coordinate with industry organisations;
  • Coordinate contributions to CIGRE main events (Session, Symposia);
  • Encourage and provide an incentive to increase CIGRE membership and create new National Committees, by incorporating countries without a National Committee in the working structure.


The existence of Regions has no impact on the governance structure of CIGRE - National Committees, Administrative Council, and Steering Committee - nor does it introduce any hierarchical notion in relations with National Committees or Study Committees.


There are currently four CIGRE Regions, as in the table below:
