IEEE Collabratec: An Online Community Platform for Technology Professionals
IEEE Collabratec was engineered to help professionals drive innovation.
Beside the scientific content that IEEE provides to its members, but also to everyone interested with its topic of operation, it also shares opportunities to meet with others around the globe. With the greatest opportunity being found in the conferences IEEE supports and sponsors, now it also has its own Social Media Network.
IEEE Collabratec was engineered to help professionals drive innovation. Join communities that advance technical interests, inform public policy, and expand knowledge for the benefit of humanity. Getting connected and sharing information and exchanging opinions on topics of interests. A one place where technology professionals – enthusiasts – academics and even teachers of early ages, can all get together for their one big interest. Technology.
By sharing specially designed and developed opportunities, IEEE manages to bring in one place all important information for IEEE members and volunteers. An information hub, easily searchable, being continuously upgraded for a better user experience, IEEE Collabratec becomes a one place for all. While at the same time is a global community for anyone, IEEE Collabratec platform is available to all technology-minded professionals at no cost.
IEEE Collabratec recently launched the Sections Gateway, where any IEEE member can find valuable information for its section. “We recently achieved an important milestone as an organization: Bringing together on one platform access to over 300 local IEEE Sections, personalized to each of our 400,000+ members globally.” Some of the benefits presented are, being linked directly with the Section’s website, but also being able to find upcoming events organized by the Section, or even conferences within geographic proximity of the Section, among other benefits also.
Now, we have the chance to see how actually IEEE members have benefited from the resources found in IEEE Collabratec. See what users of IEEE Collabratec have to say in the following video, and get the opportunity to discover and get connected with a global team of technology followers.
