The ELI Delivery Consortium International Association was founded in April 2013 as an international non-profit association under Belgian law (AISBL). It will promote the sustainable development of ELI as a pan-European research infrastructure, support the coordinated implementation of the ELI research facilities, and preserve the consistency and complementarity of their scientific missions. It will also organise the establishment of an international consortium that will be in charge of the future operation of ELI, preferably in the form of a European Research Infrastructure Consortium (ERIC).

The ELI-DC AISBL is structured as shown below.
