2020 | IEEE YOUTH ENDEAVORS FOR SOCIAL INNOVATION USING SUSTAINABLE TECHNOLOGY (YESIST12)
(rescheduled from 2020 March 17)
This exceptional platform conducts competition in two stages. The first stage is conducted in the pilots selected across countries in the world.
The team that tops the round wins a chance to compete globally to address social issues like poverty, famine, disaster management/first aid, special needs, women safety, healthcare or literacy with the assistance of inventive technologies.
All engineering graduates and professionals have visionary attributes, which helps contribute to transforming their ideas into reality. Unfortunately, the monotonicity of daily life can take its toll and result in losing track of the aspirations and goals which make visionaries who they are.
YESIST12 acts as a platform to bridge the gap between engineers and their goals/aspirations through stimulating inherent potential while also contributing to society with innovation solutions.
Venue for 2020: TBD
