EGATIN has 30 institutes with Full membership, 7 with Introductory or Intermediate status, a few dedicated individual members and some who have been awarded honorary status to acknowledge their contribution to EGATIN. Institutes can become full members when, as we do, they meet all of EGATIN’s “essential standards”.
