IEEE Region 10 Humanitarian Technology Project Presentation

Supporting engineering projects that benefit humanity¬†has always been a priority for IEEE Region 10. What’s equally important is their impact assessment. Tough to crack questions are abound: How effectively did a project solve the problem of a community? Did it integrate well within the community or did it cascade multiple problems? Was the community committed to delivering the maximum? Failing to tackle at such design and engineering levels is acceptable, but failing to learn from failure is the real challenge.

IEEE R10 HTC 2017 has taken a step to achieve this end: past projects that have been funded by IEEE R10 over the past few years under the banner of humanitarian technologies are being qualitatively and quantitatively assessed to gauge the impact they have created. A repository of this complex analysis has provided some startling, and some not so startling results.

At this year’s R10 HTC, catch the projects that have been stood the test of time, and are now flourishing, or on their way to success. A number of these findings will interest you, the statistics will engage you, and the stories will appeal to your base instincts of advancing technology for the benefit of humanity.

Whatever your reason may be of attending IEEE R10 HTC 2017, the track at this event is a must catch!

We hope to see you on December 21-23, 2017 at IEEE R10-HTC.
