The new initiative program is designed to support potential new programs, products, or services that will provide significant benefit to IEEE members, the public, the technical community, and customers, or that could have a lasting impact on IEEE or its business processes.

Initiatives must be of strategic importance to IEEE. Please review IEEE's Strategic Plan, goals, and key initiatives. The process allows submission of a proposal at any time during the year.
