EMF Institute Ltd. was registered as a New York State not-for-profit corporation on March 3, 2016. Its initial startup Board members were Joel Chadabe, Tom Beyer, and Roy Altman.

The initial mission of the organization is to make available, for purposes of reference by an interested public, an archive of the musical content of Electronic Music Foundation from its start in 1994 to 2013.

The structure, content, and scope of the archive will be determined by an advisory group.

This page will be updated from time to time until the EMF Institute website is operational, which is estimated to be in October 2016.
