Recent and Upcoming UK and Ireland Milestones

The IEEE Milestones program honours significant technical achievements in all areas associated with IEEE.  It is a program of the IEEE History Committee, administered through the IEEE History Centre.

Milestones recognise the technological innovation and excellence for the benefit of humanity found in unique products, services, seminal papers and patents. Milestones are proposed by any IEEE member, and are sponsored by an IEEE Organizational Unit (OU)—such as an IEEE section, society, chapter or student branch. After recommendation by the IEEE History Committee and approval by the IEEE Board of Directors, a bronze plaque commemorating the achievement is placed at an appropriate site with an accompanying dedication ceremony.

IEEE established the Milestones Program in 1983 in conjunction with the 1984 Centennial Celebration to recognise the achievements of the Century of Giants who formed the profession and technologies represented by IEEE.

Each milestone recognises a significant technical achievement that occurred at least twenty-five years ago in an area of technology represented in IEEE and having at least regional impact.
