Educational Trust

iwma educational

The IWMA considers that one of its primary functions is to promote new technology, education and growth in our industry. Our conferences and educational seminars provide
an international forum for the exchange of technology, regular focused meeting places for the industry and excellent reference sources from our library of past papers.

Through both the IWMA's Educational Trust Fund and its Travel Award scheme we actively encourage the gaining of new skills and experience for future rising stars in the
industry.

In addition to being the leading trade association in the industry, the IWMA also realises how important it is not to rest on its laurels and keep one eye very firmly on the future.

With that in mind, we have the Walter Niehoff Scholarship which provides funding to train an individual supported by a member company. The individual must be an apprentice, student or individual trainee at an institute, training organisation, college, university or other places of research and learning and are committed to the study and future employment in the field of engineering applicable to the wire, cable or wire products industries.

The John C Hogg Travel Award scheme contributes towards costs allowing successful applicants the opportunity to attend industry leading events such as wire Düsseldorf and CabWire world conferences. Awardees benefit from meeting key influential individuals working within the industry as well as learning about the latest technical innovations withing the industry.
