New Resolution: ITU opens up to academia

A draft new Resolution was approved this afternoon, permitting academia, universities and their associated research establishments concerned with the development of telecommunications/ICT to join ITU and participate in work of the 3 Sectors.

The financial contribution for such participation has been set at one-sixteenth of the value of a contributory unit for Sector Members from developed countries (3975 CHF) and one-thirty two of the value of the contributory unit for Sector Members for organizations from developing countries (1987.5 CHF).

Acceptance of applications for participation shall be conditional on the support of the Member States of the Union to which the bodies belong.
