The IEEE Connecting the Unconnected Summit

The 2022 Connecting the Unconnected Summit will be held as a 3-day virtual event, from 1-3 November and lasting about 3 hours each day. Registration will open soon and details of the program will be posted on this page once it is confirmed.

The IEEE CTU Summit is an annual multi-day event where experts and thought leaders convene to discuss the issue of internet connectivity. Regulators, standards setting bodies, non-profits, international companies, and other experts will meet to share current thinking on critical topics of innovation and connectivity.

The Summit also serves as an Awards Ceremony for the IEEE Connecting the Unconnected Challenge. Winners of the Challenge will have an opportunity to present their solutions in front of this global audience and receive public recognition for their IEEE awards.
