Hi Laurent (and TEI-C),
An excellent message and reminder for TEI memberships!
While we call them 'institutional' memberships we should be clear that these are open to all sorts of groups, not just large educational institutions, but smaller groups of all sizes especially research projects. At the highly affordable $250 (Supporter) or $500 (Contributor), it seems like any researcher putting in a funding application for a project that uses the TEI should strongly consider putting in project membership of the TEI for the project's duration. (Compared to the other expenses on most research projects, I wouldn't think this would rock the boat.)
As I've moved to an institution which is not, yet, and institutional member I'll put this in any suitable research project funding I go for.
