The Action for Industry team participated in the Students and Young Professionals Congress (SYP) in Regensburg, Germany during August 2016.  Two very successful interactive workshops were held at which 80+ students and young professionals, Region 8 Operations Committee and candidates for IEEE president and Region Director participated. The strong interest was evident from the many contributions made by those who said that were benefiting from the Action For Industry initiative.

To date more than 100 IEEE students have been placed in internships throughout Region 8 and many more IEEE students and young professionals have sought mentoring.
