CUTRIC Membership rates (2019)

We are pleased to announce that the new 2019 Membership Fee Tier Structure has been approved by the CUTRIC Board of Directors. Please see below for the updated revisions and details.


As part of our Academic Member Value Initiative at CUTRIC, the Academic fee structure has been modified to bring more value to our Academic Members based on the dynamic size and capacity of the institution. Academic Members will benefit from a significant drop in membership dues for the 2019 Membership year.


Current Members (2018) of CUTRIC will continue to benefit from 2018 rates on the basis that renewal invoices are paid by the invoice due date, February 28th 2019. After February 28th 2019, unpaid invoices will be revised and reissued at 2019 fee rates.

New members joining for the first time in 2019 will be structured into the new 2019 Membership rate system, unless pre-confirmed at 2018 rates in the form of a signed Letter of Membership Support by December 31st 2018.  

NEW MEMBER CATEGORY! INDUSTRY CONSULTANCY & CONSTRUCTION (For Non-Technology Developer, Non-Manufacturer, or Non-Integrator Roles)

CUTRIC has approved a new Member category for “Consultancy & Construction”, which applies to companies joining CUTRIC specifically joining to support CUTRIC’s “Innovation P3” effort and/or allied strategic planning around financing of e-buses, fuel cell buses, or smart vehicles in the future.  Members that wish to support IP development, benefit from R&D funding, or obtain sales of products or services within a given project will be classified as traditional “Industry” partners.
