The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers – Bangalore Section, as part of industry Relations, is embarking a new initiative to set up an “Industry Hub” entity.
Benefits to an Industry Ecosystem ?
We believe that the Industry HUB initiate will be instrumental in creating a more open ecosystem for championing technological initiatives with a much greater focus and impact to society at-large; and will create an effective collaboration forum for industrial entities by expanding their touch points in various technology segments.
Benefits to IEEE Bangalore Section ?
- Strengthen its outreach with the Industry ecosystem
- Strengthen its volunteer base to campion technical activities that would be of interest to existing IEEE Societies / Chapters, and the Industry ecosystem
- Strengthen its volunteer base for championing standardization activities
Rules of Operation :
- IEEE Bangalore Section Industry HUBs need to abide by the by-laws of IEEE at-large, and IEEE Bangalore Section in specific.
- Industry HUBs will be technology centric. IEEE Bangalore Section has identified the following three technology segments; and each industry hub must take up and own one such technology segment.
- Industrial IoT
- Autonoumous Vehicles
- Industry HUBs on identified technology segments will have a tenure of 3 years, with an organizational entity driving it each year and should be identified at the time of its constitution. For each specific year, the key office bearers (i.e., Chair, Vice-chair, Secretary and Treasurer) of an industry hub should be from the same organization to form an organizational entity.
- The executive committee of the industry hub MUST have the following constitution:
- Organizational Entity – 1st year -> 4 members
- Organizational Entity – 2nd year -> 4 members
- Organizational Entity – 3rd year -> 4 members
- Representative of IEEE Bangalore Section (Industry Chair) -> 1 member
- Representative of IEEE Bangalore Section (Standards Chair) -> 1 member
- Representatives of at least 2 Technical Societies -> (min.) 2 members from each technical society
- Representative of IEEE India -> 1 member
- Representatives from other organization (industry, academia and startups) -> 10 members
- IEEE Bangalore Section will review the relevance of the technology segments every 3 years.
- IEEE Bangalore Section will provide logistic and financial support to all industry hubs.
We invite proposals on the Industry HUB program. The proposal should be no longer than 3 pages, and should include at least the following:
- The name of the Industry Hub, and the respective technology segment (as per the guidelines given above)
- The name, address, and bios (not exceeding 200 words) of each key volunteer
- A brief description of the plan for the duration of 3 years, with a year-by-year breakup
- A list of names and affiliations of potential executive committee members
