Problem Statement and Objectives of the workshop

Internet of things represent a huge potential of business and innovation also strengthening and developing the future Internet. Smart cities as representing a complete eco-system are good adopters of IoT technologies as providing a lot of dedicated services to their citizens while supporting their local enterprises. The workshop will explore:

  • What are the most successful IoT applications ?
  • Are there any barriers to prevent successful deployments such as for instance from legal, societal and governance ?
  • What could be the business models to exploit the full potential of IoT innovations ?
