NGIoT Thematic workshop series on IoT and Edge Computing
This workshop on Manufacturing is part of a thematic workshop series on IoT and Edge computing, organised by the NGIoT and EU-IoT Coordination and Support Actions in collaboration with the European Commission and relevant associations, networks, and projects.
In spring 2021, NGIoT workshops are dedicated to IoT and Edge computing in 6 key application domains: Smart Cities & Communities; Agrifood and rural communities (30 March); manufacturing (27 April); energy and health (18 May).
IoT and Edge computing: Manufacturing
The afternoon of 27 April was dedicated to presentations and discussions in the domain of smart Manufacturing.
The purpose of this half-day workshop is to:
- identify research, innovation and deployment priorities;
- identify trends and gaps related to the uptake of IoT and addressing convergence of IoT with other technologies, specifically, the current shift from cloud to edge in the domain of manufacturing;
- address challenges that cut across the verticals and to provide a platform for discussion and exchange of learnings and use cases;
- mobilise communities around the identified solutions and the upcoming calls under the Horizon Europe and Digital Europe Programme.
Hosted by NGIoT with EU-IoT, ARTEMIS-IA, AIOTI, and the European Commission, DG Connect.
