The IEEE is currently planning an extensive
workforce development (WFD) programme through its
volunteer and associated networks. Together with
environmental scans, potential learning areas and contributing
partners are being solicited. The Institute of Physics has an
established workshop in Entrepreneurship for Scientists and
Engineers, which may partially fulfil this role. This paper
describes the format and content of this workshop,
constructively evaluating it keeping in mind metrics relating to
WFD. Future value-adds for IEEE involvement are identified.
Paper presented at the IEEE Global Humanitarian Technology Conference (GHTC), 20-23 Oct. 2013, San José, California, United States of America.
