More information

 

Over the coming few years, the European Internet landscape will look very different to the Internet of today. These developments, fuelled by Machine-To-Machine Communications and The Internet of Things, will open up more possibilities and help to transform European society and business, and the everyday lives of citizens. In recent years, IoT innovation in Europe has often struggled to keep up to speed with regions such as North Americas and Asia-Pacific. However, with the European Union now investing heavily in IoT and the wider digital economy, a dramatic growth in IoT innovation and commercialisation is on offer.

 

The 5th Annual Internet of Things European Summit took place on the 3-4 March 2014 and explored how the Internet of Things can help realise Europe’s policy objectives of the Future Internet.

Participants at the summit examined the current European IoT ecosystem, and explored the impact that IoT is currently having on European society, as well as in the near future.

The event also addressed the new initiatives and building blocks that are available to support IoT innovation in Europe, together by discussing what work is being done to educate citizens and increase people’s awareness of the IoT’s potential.

Topics at the two-day summit includeed:


- The current state of IoT deployment in Europe: What have we achieved? What needs to be done?
- Realizing the benefits of The Internet of Things and its impact on Society: (i) The Smart City (ii) The Connected Home
- Financing the Internet of Things
- Cloud Computing, Big Data and The Internet of Things
- IoT in Emerging Markets
- Governance and Standardization
- Spectrum Management and IoT
- Building trust and confidence – The ‘People’ side of the Internet of Things
- Security and identity management
