The Internet of Things is no longer talking to the innovation or trend watching units.
The business units have gone beyond optimising and fine-tuning efficiency to the utmost. They are sensing a huge market.
In line with current strategic developments in the Internet of Things, the programme of the IoT Week 2013 was based on four topics:
- General opening keynote addresses by policy actors and industry representatives as well as presentations from a global perspective of the Internet of Things
- IoT technologies with several sessions on actual research undertaken on IoT architecture, IP and cognitive technologies, semantic interoperability, etc…
- IoT solutions as the essential and core ingredient and motor of the Smart Cities concepts
- IoT & entrepreneurship & business models
The objective of the IoT Week is to unite the IoT community by offering a platform for presenting the latest news on relevant research topics, providing political and societal insights and offering networking opportunities.
The event is organized by the European Integrated Project IoT-A (Internet of Things – Architecture) together with several research projects. The URB-Grade project sponsored the event and co-organised the final day of the IoT-week. The report can be downloaded here. And all presentation can be found on the IoT week website.
