Dear IEEE member!

A new issue of the IEEE Sweden Section Member Newsletter “MN 2016-03” is now available! Please download and read.PDF

Some highlights in Newsletter 2016-03

A lot of activities are ongoing – organized by the Sweden Section, by Chapters and by Affinity Groups.

We just had our annual Chair workshop 6 Oct, with almost all chapters and affinity groups participating via web or physically. Much focus was on work & changes done so far, what we have learned, and what & how to do better.

IEEE Region 8 is and will be very relevant for Sweden. Sweden participated in the R8 Congress in Germany, and received an Award! At the R8 meeting in September, it became apparent the way R8 will work in the future is much inspired by the changes we done in the Sweden Section. Moreover, the next R8 meeting has been decided to be in Stockholm in March 2017, preparations ongoing. And the R8 Director 2017-2018 will be Margaretha Ericsson, Sweden.

Our efforts to increase industry relevance are ongoing and increasing. More efforts in webinars, workshops and broader cooperation with industry are planned. Your inputs are much appreciated.

In this context, discussions are continuously ongoing with the IEEE entities in the Nordic and Baltic areas. As a member, please feel free to bring inputs to this discussion

Best regards
