Raphael,
Thanks for this – clear one key thing is to choose and indicator to base it on, GERD, GDP, etc.
Then we need a function that maps to the contribution.
Personally I would suggest a smooth curve rather than a stepped one. To avoid the having any contributors on a boundary, and also to provide a way to annually adjust the contribution in line with the indicator. Eg if GDP rises so does the contribution.
There are different ways we can define the curve. If we pick a few examples of what we would expect from economies of a certain sizes we can make a curve.
Below are a few curves I quickly made in excel from the data you gave in your example.
Best regards,
Juan.

Hello again,
as a follow-up to todays meeting here an example for a financial contribution
scheme that’s in place at the International Neuroinformatics Coordinating
Facility (disclaimer: I’ve been working for this organization prior to joining Max Planck).
It is based on GERD but defines an explicit mapping of GERD ranges to contribution amounts.
Just so we know some more options …
Cheers,
Raphael

Basic Voluntary Financial Contributions according to the payment table are based on Gross
Domestic Expenditure on Research and Development (GERD). This table and associated voluntary contribution amounts
for participation are to be reviewed each year by the Governing Board and may be updated using appropriate figures
from consistent reliable global sources.
