IEEE SS12 2018 : Strategic Partnerships - United Nations
Recognizing the importance of technological innovations for achieving the Sustainable Development Goals, the United Nations (UN) brings together a diverse set of stakeholders to take on some of the most pressing global challenges. The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc. (IEEE), a leading authority in technical areas, works with UN to innovate for a better tomorrow.
IEEE SS12: Age of Innovation 2018 is an international project competition to recognize the best social innovations under the theme “Empathy to Engineering: Solutions for Micro Issues”. The competition is open to undergraduates from all around Asia. Deriving from the theme, the submissions are expected to address global issues such as poverty and famine, disaster management, women’s safety, healthcare or literacy.
Working with UN, this competition would be an ideal platform for promoting regional connectivity and addressing some of the most pressing global challenges.
