NEXT GENERATION INTERNET OF THINGS – A GAME CHANGER FOR BUSINESSES AND COMMUNITIES

Come and join us for an inspiring day, exploring the impact of the fast-growing and ever-changing Internet of Things (IoT) in businesses and communities.

Key Take-aways

  • New knowledge within the area of IoT
  • How to empower cities and communities using IoT and Artificial Intelligence
  • Information on upcoming roadmaps of IoT research, innovation and deployment
  • Concrete examples of how start-ups work with IoT
  • Get IoT inspiration from some of the biggest technology firms
  • A lively conversation with leading experts and researchers

Closing date for registration is monday May 6th at 12.

It-forum together with Aarhus University and Smart City Cluster Denmark are co-organising this full-day conference. We’re inviting you to join some of the most relevant IoT experts, encouraging companies, start-ups, researchers, cities and communities to get to know more about where technology is taking us – and how we make it work to the benefit for everyone.

We start off with a joint opening session and wrap up the day together. In between, the conference is divided into two tracks: one diving into working with IoT in companies and start-ups and the other one focusing on the possibilities and societal challenges for IoT in cities and communities.

This event is also setting the scene for IoT Week 2019 taking place in Aarhus 17-21 June.
