Due to its ambient nature and relatively complex implementation across all sectors of industry and society, IoT products and services disrupt existing divisions between network administration, digital service providers, knowledge institutions and civil society. A single solution will need to embed disjunct competences of both developers and users, enabling a broad understanding of the value and challenges of implementing IoT solutions across use cases and stakeholder groups.
Towards this, active synergies on real use case piloting activities and solutions between IoT research, innovation and development projects at European and national levels becomes critical.
In this corner, you can find the first such projects beyond the IoT LSP and IoT ESP projects that participate in the NGIoT ecosystem and contribute actively to its community.
The main goal of the HU4NGI project is to bootstrap the current Next Generation Internet (NGI) initiative and turn it into a dynamic, collaborative, and participatory innovation ecosystem capable of more effectively supporting and coordinating activities across the whole R&D landscape.
The bIoTope project lays the foundation for creating open innovation ecosystems by providing a platform that enables companies to easily create new IoT systems and to rapidly harness available information using advanced Systems-of-Systems (SoS) capabilities for Connected Smart Objects – with minimal investment.
symbIoTe comes to remedy the fragmented environment across various IoT domains by providing an abstraction layer for a “unified view” on various platforms and their resources so that platform resources are transparent to application designers and developers.
