  • Network and build partnerships at the national and international level
  • Learn about the benefits of string cooperation between Academia, Industry, and Government

The summit will be an opportunity to celebrate with us the great success of the IEEE Tunisia section, established on June 2008. During the last 10 years, hundreds of IEEE Tunisia section volunteers worked together to brought to +2,500 members more than 1,400 IEEE meetings and hundreds of benefits for students, young professionals, and seniors, through +100 technical chapters, affinity groups, student branches, and student chapters.
