How You Can Help Us? We recognise that the IEA can only succeed in its mission and achieve its objectives with the collective support of all actors in the banknote community including: Central banks Banknote Designers Banknote Printers Banknote Industry Suppliers Banknote Technology Developers The IEA & the IBDA are based on an equitable partnership between all the above actors in the pursuit of preserving and improving excellence in intaglio. This involves teaching engraving skills, sharing know-how and ensuring the optimal application of new technology within the scope of intaglio designs. Our objectives are essentially the same as yours. We provide a valuable link in the chain of banknote security and integrity. However, as part of a non-profit making association, we depend on the financial support, donations and sponsorship by industry actors in order to survive and continue or work. An investment in the IEA will deliver returns for your organisation and the banknote community as a whole. Examples of such returns on investment include: Opportunity to nominate your own engraver/student to participate in IEA Possibility to propose specific projects for a student and receive Master Engraver supervision A guarantee of well-trained intaglio engravers for the future  Certainty that the student is up to date on the latest intaglio engraving techniques and technologies Absolute assurance that your nominated engraver/student will receive the highest level of training You can choose to support the IEA via any of the following options: PARTNERSHIP DIRECT FINANCIAL SUPPORT By chosing to make a direct financial donation you will become an IEA Partner.
