There is no special application form for Universities who wish to become Associates. To become an Associate, Universities are expected to have the capacity of being able to undertake research or teaching at an advanced level. Evidence of relevant Masters Degree (or equivalent) Courses or Research in marine technology is usually requested. More importantly perhaps, WEGEMT is most keen to recruit universities who wish to play an active part in collaborative R&D and E&T initiatives which are developed under the WEGEMT brand.
WEGEMT however recognises that the ability to participate will vary from university to university and is determined by a number of constraints. Some of the present Associates for instance are happy to receive information and publications and attend the Annual Conference but cannot participate more actively because they may be small departments.
You are invited to contact a member of the Executive Committee or the General Secretary in the first instance. Our home page also contains a link to the WWW pages of our Associates, usually the Department which acts as the point of contact if you wish to consult with a university geographically or technically closer to your own university.
