Next Generation Internet of Things

Project description

Unlocking the future of IoT with EU values in mind

The future of the IoT is bright and powered by AI, 5G and Big Data. Unlocking the growth of IoT is a priority, but one that needs to respect core European values and support key EU policies. In this context, the EU-funded NGIoT project will provide strategic coordination of existing IoT-related stakeholders, organisations, networks, initiatives and projects in preparation of upcoming key European and national industry and research and innovation. Specifically, the project will design a roadmap for European IoT research and innovation. The project’s work will be guided by human-centred principles to support the digital transformation of value creation in Europe, across industries, in verticals and in civil society.

Objective

NGIoT is a Coordination and Support Action (CSA) that will create a robust and agile research, innovation and implementation agenda that will lead to unlocking the growth potential of the Internet of Things (IoT) while respecting core European values, supporting key EU policies, leveraging the key associations, and establishing a Strategy Board. The main objective of NGIoT is to mobilise effectively and provide strategic coordination of existing IoT-related stakeholders, organisations, networks, initiatives and projects in preparation of upcoming key European and national industry and research and innovation as well as implementation initiatives. NGIoT establishes a roadmap for European Internet of Things (IoT) research and innovation as well as implementation that addresses the complex situation of IoT in the world today. Furthermore, it shows a way forward based on European values, and it supports key policies such as the Digitizing European Industry (DEI) and the Digital Single Market (DSM) situating IoT in relation to the rest of the technology landscape, including security, Artificial Intelligence (AI), 5G, edge computing, and not least the Next Generation Internet (NGI).

The NGIoT ambition reflects a realization that the landscape for deploying human-centred IoT is very dynamic, multi-sectored and multi-faceted, calling for an inclusive and innovative approach to research and innovation. In addition, the NGIoT ambition calls for an implementation strategy and orchestration that can inform and be informed by societal needs, including the need to formulate policy, to create standards and to give guidance on technical feasibility at scale across application domains. The three-year action will interconnect prominent stakeholders and initiatives in the field of IoT in a Strategy Board, supporting the digital transformation of value creation in Europe, across industries, in verticals and in civil society. Liaising between existing initiatives, organizations, sectors and stakeholders, NGIoT will deliver a cross-domain ecosystem approach to establish new directions for research and innovation as well as implementation in IoT, identifying priorities and new horizons for the period of 2020-2027.
