As one of the world leaders in computing innovation, Intel endeavours to go above and beyond making the world’s best chips, to being at the forefront of delivering quality of life to people around the world.

2011 Events
 
 
Intel’s passion for innovation is reflected in our commitment to social responsibility. In October, Intel co-hosted the 2nd Asia NGO Innovation Summit (ANIS) in partnership with the Hope Institute. The summit brought together thought leaders and policy makers from across Asia Pacific to develop new ideas, and strategies that can meet the challenges facing society and help foster the move toward more sustainable, innovation-based economies.

Other efforts to improve the lives of citizens across the region included the Get SETT program in Maylaysia, an extension of our global STEM initiative, to help nurture the scientists, engineers and technologists of tomorrow. In addition, many countries in the region participated in a range of volunteer projects for Earth Day 2011 . And, in India, the company’s support of employee led Social Entrepreneurship efforts enabled multiple innovative programs including integrating a software solution on low cost netbook computers to assist the visually impaired and a project to help researchers conduct studies on endangered tiger populations.

For Earth Day 2011, Intel volunteers expanded existing programs and implemented new ones as diverse as educational roadshows, recycling projects, reforestation and organic farming.
