Stepping Stone Award

The IEEE Region 5 Stepping Stone Award in the IEEE Fields of Interest honors significant technical achievements in these fields. The Stepping Stone Award recognizes technological innovation and excellence for the benefit of humanity found in unique products, services, seminal papers, and patents. An achievement must have importance to the technologies associated within Region 5 in order to be proposed as a Stepping Stone—e.g. invented, initially demonstrated, first used, produced in Region 5.

Stepping Stone Awards honor the achievement, rather than necessarily a place or a person. Stepping Stones may be proposed by any Region 5 IEEE member. A proposed Stepping Stone must be sponsored in the first five years (through 2020) by Region 5 itself through its executive committee and thereafter by Region 5 itself or by a Region 5 IEEE organizational unit (OU) such as a Region 5 IEEE section, society chapter, or student branch.
