Internet of Things (IoT) is an emerging paradigm which promises to resolve many social and economic problems that the world is currently facing. For instance, smarter cities that more efficiently use the city infrastructure resources, which should be shared by the increasing population; smarter homes with increased safety and comfort; smarter, eco-friendly transportation; efficient industrial processes for improved production, etc. These are global problems that need global solutions.
Significant worldwide effort is currently being conducted to create the building blocks for future IoT solutions. Various standardization work, industrial alliances, collaborative R&D, etc. has been founded and obtained valuable progress. However, with this rapidly emerging domain and opportunities, the risk of wasting efforts is high if we miss the importance of worldwide collaboration and benefit from the cross-cultural collaboration and exchange of experiences.
This workshop brings together some example collaboration efforts between European, American and Asian institutes in the IoT domain. The participants will share with the audience their experiences with such collaborations, share best practices and lessons learnt. The presenters will also be able to provide guidelines for future collaboration opportunities.
