The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers is currently accepting proposals for its IEEE in 2030 Challenge, which calls on industry professionals to help develop new ideas to serve the future of the market.

With the 2030 Challenge, professionals submit their proposals to IEEE for consideration of a seed grant of $40,000 or less. The proposals must be geared toward IEEE�s strategic needs of serving engineers and technology professionals in the industry, must be able to be finished in 12 months, and the seed grant cannot be used to pay salaries or purchase capital equipment.

�People that are out there in the world of technology, working every day in it, probably have some good ideas,� said John Keaton, strategy and future studies director for IEEE Corporate Activities. �That�s what we are hoping for, something creative, innovative, maybe even disrupts IEEE�s way of doing things� something that will shift us into a new way of providing services.�� ��

The deadline to submit proposals is Sept. 15. The committee will then confer and announce the winning proposals in early October. For more information, click here.
