The IEA/Tsinghua Award for Collaborative Human Factors and Ergonomics Education for Industrially Developing Countries (The IEA/Tsinghua Award)
The IEA/Tsinghua Award for Collaborative Human Factors and Ergonomics Education for Industrially Developing Countries is given annually to honor persons (e.g., researchers, teachers) who have made significant and outstanding contributions to the success of postgraduate educational programs that have human factors and ergonomics (HFE) courses in the curriculum or contain substantial HFE content in some courses, through international and/or inter-regional collaboration.
