INTUE is dedicated to supporting time-use epidemiologists from all countries, irrespective of their economic standard, to join the membership. It is, therefore, embedded in the Constitution of the Network that the membership fees are calculated relative to the economic standard of the country/economy of residence of the given member.
The current yearly membership fees can be found here.
Requests for a reduced membership fee can be made by full members or new applicants for the membership. The request will be made in writing and lodged with the Secretary (firstname.lastname@example.org). The request should include a clear argumentation of why the reduction of membership fee is required. If needed for the assessment, the Steering Committee may ask for additional written evidence or explanations to be provided.
