IEEE HAC/SIGHT 2020 COVID Projects Program

In 2020, HAC/SIGHT held a Special Call for Proposals to support grassroots humanitarian technology and sustainable development projects that addressed the COVID-19 situation by IEEE members in their local communities.

There was a wonderful response of 229 proposals submitted and IEEE HAC/SIGHT awarded funding for 101 projects to be implemented in response to COVID-19. A list of funded projects with a brief description of each one can be found in this spreadsheet.

You can also join 2021 HAC Chair Sampathkumar Veeraraghavan to learn the story of the HAC/SIGHT 2020 COVID Projects program and hear an update of the 2021 program in this “Ask the Chair” session.
