Just to be clear,

What's the differences between OWASP education supporter and futur OWASP academies ? 

We (France) have ISEP as a supporter, and we are in the process with another university (Bordeaux France) for setting up a Course on WebAppSec.

Is this an academie ? Or could this be count as a supporter ?

What is clear, however, is that to make this happen we will need your input and ideas, your energy and your initiative. Moreover, as we are planning to include this discussion in one of the Working Sessions to be held in the upcoming OWASP Summit 2011, this would be the perfect timing to gather your input and contributions.
