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
For more information about the Industry Connections program and its activities email the IC Program Administrator.
