NWERC-based Rules

We will follow NWERC for 2022 and return to in-person only participation, in teams of (up to) 3. Each university is also separately responsible for their selection process for deciding which teams to send to NWERC. This may be based upon team performance in the UKIEPC, or determined separately; teams do not have to remain the same.
