Coventry University joined the World Technology Universities Network about two years ago. We particularly appreciate this network because of its emphasis on technology to solve real world challenges, the commitment to the UN SDGs and the tightly focussed, committed membership. The latter making it very easy to reach out to other members and receive a prompt and engaging response (unlike many larger networks). The congress in Chennai last year and the programme of exchanges are two highlights of the network and have been very beneficial for Coventry in building relationships with a number of international universities.
Of course, any network membership is only as useful as the effort you put into it. Active engagement in the Operational Board is key as is that commitment to responding to other network members.
