I would like to encourage you and the leading volunteers in your section to support the Humanitarian and Sustainable Development Activities (such as IEEE SIGHT as attached)
IEEE HAC provides multiple opportunities for IEEE individuals and organizational units (OUs) to apply for and receive funding for projects, events, and conference participation support.
HAC will be reviewing and updating all Calls for Proposals in the first quarter (January – March) of 2019. Recognizing that many activities take place early in the year and cannot wait for a later deadline, HAC will hold in January 2019 one call per program that utilizes the same format as the 2018 Call for Proposals.
- Submission deadline for HAC Projects Call 1 is 21 January 2019
- Submission deadline for HAC Events Call 1 is 24 January 2019
- Submission deadline for IEEE SIGHT Projects Call 1 is 28 January 2019
- Submission deadline for HAC Conference Participation Call 1 is 31 January 2019
Eligibility requirements and full details for these four calls may be found at: https://www.ieee.org/about/corporate/humanitarian-activities-committee.html
Please encourage your local submissions!
Dr. Jing Dong
IEEE R10 Humanitarian Activities Committee Chair, 2019-2020
