Professor Marko Delimar is the recipient of the prestigious IEEE Haraden Pratt Award "for inspired vision and steadfast leadership in improving global IEEE influence, member engagement, and governance". The award has been awarded since 1972, and thus far only four people from the EMEA region (Europe, Middle East and Africa) have received it.
Marko Delimar, professor at FER's Department of Energy and Power Systems, played a leading role in intensifying IEEE's cooperation with European organizations and agencies, with numerous contributions that helped shape the EU public policy in technical areas. The concepts he participated in creating permeated numerous EU policies, including the EU 2050 Climate Strategy.
The Award was presented to Professor Delimar at the IEEE Honors Ceremony in Atlanta, GA, USA on 5 May 2023. More information is available at the link here and below the notification.
As the inaugural Chair of the IEEE European Public Policy Committee, Delimar led the development of a Europe-focused public policy initiative that strengthened the position of the technical community in public policy debates and increased visibility within the various policy communities. Prof. Delimar co-created the IEEEXtreme Programming Competition, which has become IEEE's flagship competition, bringing together thousands of students from around the world for a 24-hour event. IEEEXtreme 16.0 was attended globally by nearly 15,000 participants from 65 countries representing 676 student chapters.
