IEEE has received the 2012 Summit Award—the highest recognition bestowed by the American Society of Association Executives—for the IEEE Humanitarian Technology Challenge (HTC). The IEEE HTC is now merged with Engineering for Change, which seeks to develop technical, locally appropriate, and sustainable solutions to humanitarian challenges. The IEEE Power & Energy Society, IEEE Nuclear and Plasma Sciences Society, and IEEE Computational Intelligence Society have contributed funding, technical knowledge, and volunteer work to projects under HTC.
