Massey University to Host Professors from Univ. Nice Sophia Antipolis (France) and Syracuse University (USA) to discuss research collaboration
Prof Sarkar and Prof Pichot will be visiting Assoc. Prof. Jane Goodyer on behalf of IEEE SIGHT (Special Interest Group for Humanitarian Technology). The main Objectives of SIGHT are to promote the mission of IEEE regarding humanitarian technology activities, particularly:
- To bring together members/IEEE OUs working in or wishing to work in humanitarian fields and to encourage and promote them in activities that use humanitarian technologies by giving them an opportunity for participation. Increasing awareness of IEEE members and engineers of the potential of their work to improve the standard of living of underserved populations, and encouraging them to increase efforts in this direction.
- To engage with NGOs, Civil Society Organizations, UN Organizations, Corporates, and other similar bodies to synergize efforts in delivering useful and sustainable technologies in their operations. To work with other bodies in the global engineering community who have similar goals and help each other in delivering to the ideals and participate in joint activities.
