You can contact the SensUs Organization at firstname.lastname@example.org
2. Formal application letter from the university
The professor(s) of the university provide the chair of the SAB with a formal application letter from the management of the university. The letter should express that the management supports the participation in SensUs. The letter should explicitly state that (i) the professor(s) can spend time on recruiting and guiding the team, (ii) the students will get access to laboratories and will receive the necessary safety trainings, and (iii) the team will get financial support from the university (to set up a website, buy materials, equipment, etc).
3. Advice from SensUs professors
The chair of the SAB shares the application letter with all professors of the SensUs universities, in order to collect their remarks and their votes on the addition of the new university. The results are discussed in the SAB and the advice is sent to the chairs of the SensUs Organization.
4. Decision by SensUs Organization
The SensUs Organization takes the decision and communicates it to the professor(s).
