IWA: The Organisation behind the IAYC

The International Workshop for Astronomy e.V. (IWA) was founded in Germany as a non-profit organisation with two aims: (1) to promote international collaboration and agreement, and (2) to spread astronomical knowledge and teach young people to work scientifically on their own. IWA is run by members from all over the world who are all previous participants at the IAYC. As a non-profit organisation, IWA has no interest in commercial gain from the IAYC.
