Q5: Projects Funding Initiative

ISOC, through the Project Funding program, also partially funds chapter and members projects, which host a large amount of local discussion and education.

What goals should ISOC pursue with the projects funding initiative? Would you recommend any changes to be more useful for ISOC, chapters and members?

    The current work of ISOC are widely lauded. However, I would like to suggest that ISOC should come up with initiatives of connecting three pillars of the society Industry-Academia-Government. These three pillars either employ or influence almost every human being on earth. The project funding initiatives should connect with three pillars and eventually the end-user of the spectrum.

    The Project Funding Initiative has done much good. It should be evaluated while it continues in order to study possible changes. Among these would be:

    1. Funding larger-scale projects than till now, in some instances by assocaiting with other grant-giving organizations wth shared interests.

    2. Increasing the ties between chapters’ and individual members’ projects with the resources, needs and initiatives of the organizational members, and looking for ways that local branches of these companies be enabled to interact with the Chapters in these projects.

    As often happens, another aspect to be dealt with is constant communication of the results, people involved, and emerging best practice in project funding and in the ways the projects are conducted.

    Given the critical nature of the operational and technical issues of IPNGN, funding should be focused on achieving priority areas on the key initiative areas and on concrete deliverables.
