The IEEE Future Innovations Summit goes behind the scenes of the most innovative and successful technologies to discover how we turn from the current challenges into tomorrow’s innovations. It brings together policymakers, leaders and experts in technology and innovations, with IEEE students and professional members.

The Summit will tackle the issue of the current and future innovation in Industry, Education, Communications, and Smart Cities, as well their impact in terms of societal transformation. The summit will also address bridging the Gap between Academia, Industry, and Government to benefit the citizens.

The Summit will be an opportunity to discuss the ethical concerns and behavioral challenges linked to the transformative technologies, and reflect on the key roles of Research & Development, Standardization, as well as Science, Technology, and Innovation Policy, in creating the right conditions for bringing cutting-edge technology innovations for the benefit of Humanity.
