The ProFiL Netzwerkverein e.V. was founded in 2013 by participants and the head of the Berlin ProFiL Programme in order to sustainably secure and further develop the successfully established consulting and support structures and the large performance potential of the ProFiL Network.

Prerequisites for membership in the ProFiL Netzwerkverein e.V. are the willingness to support the goals of the association and past, current or future participation in the ProFiL Programme.
