Supporting the incubation of new technologies standards and related services in a rapidly changing environment.

About the program


The IEEE-SA Industry Connections (IC) program helps incubate new standards and related services by helping like-minded organizations come together in a quick and cost-effective manner to hone and refine their thinking on rapidly changing technologies, and determine appropriate next steps. This program offers an efficient, economical, safe harbor environment for building consensus and producing shared results.

Industry Connections empowers groups with a customizable menu of IEEE and IEEE-SA resources to produce "fast-track" materials, such as, proposals for standards, white papers, peer-reviewed specifications, guides and position papers. Results may also include online databases, data feeds, video services and other specialized tools.
