IEEE Regional Exemplary Student Branch Award

The IEEE Student Branch of Eindhoven University of Technology has received a prestigious award.

It was handed over at the IEEE Region 8 meeting in Ljubljana (Slovenia). The award was presented by C. Stasopoulos, director of Region 8 for an "Exemplary Performance as a Student Branch during the 2014-2015 Academic Year". Considering the large geographical size of Region 8 (including Europe, Africa and parts of Asia including Russia), this is an immense accomplishment for the Eindhoven IEEE Student Branch.

In the picture the representatives of the IEEE Student Branch and the Chairman of the IEEE Section Benelux, Prof. A.B. Smolders. More

Benelux Section improves relation with industry by signing MoU with KIVI

In order to improve the relation with industry in the Netherlands, a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between the IEEE Benelux section and the Royal Netherlands Society of Engineers (KIVI) was signed. With 20,000 members, KIVI is the largest engineering society in the Netherlands. Traditionally, KIVI activities are organized by active members from industry, whereas most of the IEEE activities have been focusing mainly on the academic community in the past years. The MoU was signed during a joint IEEE/KIVI symposium on “Management challenges of the internet of things” by the executive director of the KIVI, Micaela dos Ramos (left), and Bart Smolders (right), chair of the IEEE Benelux section. The main objective of the MoU is to organize joint activities which are of interest for KIVI and IEEE members in the domain of Electrical Engineering. The MoU fits well with the ‘IEEE Action for Industry’. By engaging with the KIVI, the Benelux section expects to bridge the gap towards members from industry. In addition, we expect to attract new members from industry.

Martin van den Brink received IEEE Robert N. Noyce Medal

A technical and managerial trailblazer for over three decades, Martin van den Brink has driven innovations in optical lithography critical to advancing Moore’s Law for the continued development of smaller and more advanced electronics. Optical lithography is a microfabrication process in which light-sensitive chemicals are used to transfer circuit patterns onto chip wafers, enabling mass production of integrated circuits. One of ASML’s first employees from its start-up in 1984, Dr. van den Brink’s technical direction has positioned ASML as the world’s largest supplier of essential optical lithography systems for the semiconductor industry.

IEEE Benelux Section General Assembly

The General Assembly is held to re-elected the Chairman, Vice-Chairman, Secretary and Treasurer of the Benelux Section, according to the Bylaws of the Section. The Section Chairperson, Luc Vandendorpe, will give an introduction on the Benelux Section and on the four nominated candidates after which the official election will take place. The General Assembly is followed by a Meet the Fellows event. IEEE Fellow is the highest grade of IEEE membership for select IEEE members with extraordinary accomplishments in the field of IEEE. Three of the new Benelux Fellows elected in 2013 and 2014 will give a keynote talk and present their research fields and their evolutions to a wider audience. At the end of the program, a reception will give the attendees the opportunity to network. The event is free to attend, but we ask you to register via our event page: https://meetings.vtools.ieee.org/m/30861. More information regarding time, date, location, the nominated candidates and the IEEE fellows can be found here.

We hope to welcome you at the General Assembly or any other upcoming IEEE event soon.
