About the program
The IEEE Standards Association (IEEE-SA) Industry Connections (IC) program helps incubate new standards and related products and services by facilitating collaboration among organizations and individuals as they hone and refine their thinking on rapidly changing technologies.
The IC program offers an efficient, economical 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" content and deliverables such as:
- Proposals for standards
- White papers
- Peer-reviewed guides and position papers
- Conferences, workshops and other events
- Databases and registration services
- Software, tools and web services
- Other jointly developed results
Current Industry Connections Activities address a wide variety of technical areas and issues.

Industry Connections Activities do not develop standards. Industry Connections Activities may propose a new standard by submitting a project authorization request (PAR). If the PAR is approved, the standard is developed in an IEEE standards development Working Group.
