HTB Funding Opportunities

IEEE is the world’s largest technical professional organization dedicated to advancing technology for the benefit of humanity. The IEEE Humanitarian Technologies Board (HTB) inspires and empowers IEEE volunteers around the world carrying out and supporting impactful humanitarian technology activities at the local level. Since 2013, IEEE HTB and its predecessors have provided funding to IEEE Members who prepare and lead humanitarian technology projects, activities, and events.

IEEE Tech4Good

The IEEE Tech4Good program offers funding opportunities to support grassroots technological projects, led by IEEE members, that address local challenges related to sustainable development.

The projects are required to address one or more of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. Project teams must build a relationship with the partner community to identify a specific need and develop a plan to address it through the implementation of appropriate technology. They take into account the relevant environmental, cultural, socio-economic, and infrastructural issues that could affect the project and its impact. Many times teams partner with local government, NGOs, schools and universities, or companies to effectively deploy the solution.
