IEEE-SA helps to foster new and emerging technologies that have real-world applications.

IEEE Standards Association Initiatives

The IEEE Standards Association (IEEE-SA) is a home for new and emerging technologies activities and consensus work. As industry continues to innovate and expand the possibilities of what technology can do for humanity, the IEEE-SA is identifying opportunities to explore rapidly evolving technologies, the need for interoperability and consensus building via an open, transparent, and proven process. 

IEEE has focused efforts in the following technology areas:

 

 

A fusion of blue, light blue, and green colors and a DNA string
