Predrag Pale, president of the IEEE Croatia Section Education Chapter in the period 2014-2017, is the winner of the annual IEEE Education Society Outstanding Chapter Leadership Award. It is an award given at a global level as a recognition to the president of the (local) IEEE Education Society section who made an outstanding contribution with programmes which are interesting to students and experts. The award consists of a plaque and commemorative charter, which reads: "for leadership in the promotion of important activities in IEEE Croatia Section Education Chapter”. The award ceremony will be held at the annual conference " Frontiers in Education " which will be held in October in San Jose in California, United States. This award is a great recognition to the leadership of the Education Chapter, but also to the entire IEEE Croatia Section. Many thanks to the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computing in Zagreb (FER) which provided the Section with resources and equipment, without which it would have been impossible to achieve the results that are (also) globally recognized. Congratulations to Predrag Pale and his associates Vesna Kezdorf and Juraj Petrović for this great recognition!
