The purpose of National Society Agreements is to encourage cooperation, and coordinated joint activities between the country's National Society, and the local countries’ IEEE section. One of the cooperative activities has been the establishment of joint awards between the National Society and IEEE.
Below is a list of country-specific joint IEEE awards, established with National Societies, that the IEEE Awards Board is responsible for supervising.
