Technology, science, and engineering are at the heart of ITU’s work. Our members from academia, who represent over 160 universities and research institutions around the world, help our entire membership push boundaries on a wide range of issues. They build bridges between disciplines, connect theory with application, and stimulate international dialogue.

Academia can join all three Sectors with an annual reduced fee.


Universities and research institutes contribute on a regular basis to ITU’s work. Today, we need the knowledge of the academic community more than ever. ITU relies on their advice to help shape the future – international standards, policies and regulations.
