How to join IMHE (and benefit from the member rate)?


It’s easy…

As a member, you benefit from a number of services and discounts. For example, Conference participation by representatives of IMHE member organisations at the member rate of 300/350€/person (instead of 800/900€/person) is unlimited. This is the same for associations, as long as the participants are association staff. However, participation from representatives of institutions that are members of your association is limited to 3 participants at the member rate.
