The EGRIP project is a highly international project. The nations participate in the science proportionally to their contribution to the logistics.

The nations contributing with more than 5 million DKK are considered ‘major’ partners of the project and include Denmark, Germany, Japan, Norway, US, France (funding has been applied for), and Switzerland. In addition, Italy, China, South Korea, Sweden, and Iceland have expressed interest in participating as ‘small’ partners with minor logistical contributions and more specialized science projects.

From some nations, there are several research groups that contribute to the EGRIP science goals. However, each nation has only one member of the Scientific Steering Committee (SC) who coordinates the work on a national basis. The list below shows the national SC representatives for each partner nation.
