The IoT Special Interest Group has launched a ground-breaking new project, as a partnership between the SIG, the Technology Strategy Board, three KTNs, and three Research Councils.
This Research and R&D road-mapping project aims to map and better understand:
The current research landscape relevant to the Internet of Things
The research and R&D challenges for research institutions and businesses in the Internet of Things space
The future skills need and challenges to enable the UK to lead internationally in delivering and realising the IoT capability.
Jointly funded by the IoT SIG, the EPSRC, AHRC and ESRC, the project will be delivered through a programme of interactive workshops, with leading researchers and potential users of the research drawn from a number of sectors.
The project output will be a report for RCUK and TSB but which will also be used in discussions with the European Commission, and at other relevant policy and research fora.
A Background Briefing note on the project is available here
A key element of the work programme includes a two-day Workshop in Loughborough on 11/12 July.
Although the event is now full, places may become available for members of the IoT _Connect community. Anyone interested in attending should sign-up at iot-research.eventbrite.co.uk
and join the wait list.
