Academia NDT International


'ACADEMIA' was the term which described the sacred place in ancient Greece where Plato is said to have had his Centre of Learning, an olive grove dedicated to the goddess of wisdom, Athena.

These days we understand an Academia to represent an accumulation of knowledge in a certain field of science. A forum for the exchange of ideas, this brings together the most eminent scientists and experts to promote excellence in science and practice, facilitating solutions to the problems facing mankind.

The idea of the Academia NDT International emerged a few years ago, reflecting a need in the NDT community to have a body that is evidence of the science in the NDT field at the highest level. A Steering Committee was formed and met for the first time on 25 May 2007 in Opatija, Croatia.
The overall objective of the Academia is to foster research, development and education in the NDT field by engaging NDT professionals in a combined effort, thus attaining the goal of always seeking progress.

Giuseppe Nardoni, President of the Academia NDT International, has referred to the organisation as "the greatest gift we can make to the new generation of NDT."
