IEEE Humanitarian Technology Board History


The IEEE Humanitarian Activities Committee (HAC) was launched in 2016 as a committee of IEEE reporting to the IEEE Board of Directors (BoD). HAC was an outgrowth of the IEEE Humanitarian Ad Hoc Committee (HAHC) that was appointed at the end of 2011 by IEEE President Moshe Kam and finished in 2015 with the successful approval by the IEEE BoD of the HAC governance documents.

in November of 2022, the IEEE Board of Directors approved to re-establish the Humanitarian Activities Committee (HAC) as the IEEE Humanitarian Technologies Board (HTB).
