WP4 Task 3.1 - Significant expansion of EVI-GTI membership

This task, although designated a year 3 tasks, has been on going throughout the life of the project. At an early stage it was recognised that it would be necessary for EVI-GTI to make an early start on recruitment of Members if the self-sustaining organisation was to be given an opportunity to survive as the pump priming funding from the EU ended in 2005. The first Call for Membership was launched at EVI-GTI’s 1st International Conference for Gas Turbine Instrumentation, which was held in Barcelona in September 2004.

The conference was extremely successful, attracting over 60 delegates from around Europe and with representation from the US. This event secured an additional 11 member organisations for the new organisation. A second Call for Membership will be launched at EVI-GTI’s 2nd International Conference for Gas Turbine Instrumentation, which will be held in Dubrovnik in October 2005. This is due to coincide with the formation of EVI-GTI as an International Non-Profit Organisation (INPA) with its legal entity based in Belgium.
