IEEE Launches Interactive Web Site to Highlight Members’ Humanitarian Projects

13 April – IEEE has announced the new Humanitarian Technology Network (HTN) – a platform that enables IEEE members to connect and collaborate with others doing similar humanitarian work, while gaining visibility and recognition for their efforts. In addition to sharing details of their project(s), IEEE members may also post their needs for advice, funding or assistance from others.  The ability to post articles in the HTN is one of the benefits of IEEE membership.  Anyone can browse or view the HTN content, including humanitarians, Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs), and others who may wish to partner with or fund member humanitarian efforts.

The HTN is built on the same technology as the IEEE Global History Network launched in 2008.  The platform accommodates multi-media descriptions – including text, photographs, diagrams, audio, video, as well as PowerPoint slide presentations.
