The Next Generation Internet of Things (NGIoT) is an initiative to build a resilient European IoT Hub. It acts as an accelerator for the whole European IoT ecosystem towards transforming the current IoT community of researchers and innovators in Europe into an increasingly cohesive, dynamic, participatory and sustainable ecosystem. It assists stakeholders to engage and create value, as well as set up a self-sustaining European IoT community.

NGIoT supports the consolidation of Europe’s leading position in creating a secure, safe, trusted and “human-centric” IoT research & innovation, development and deployment environment.

In April, the European Commission, in collaboration with EU-IoT, organised the Next-Generation IoT and Edge Computing Strategy Forum.The event gatheredtop technology experts from across several digital and vertical domains, as well as corporate-strategy level representatives to exchange views on priorities, challenges and opportunities, and establish a commonly shared strategic European vision for the next-generation IoT and (far) edge computing.

This session explores achievements so far in building an ecosystem for IoT and Edge Computing, showcases funding opportunities and takes a look ahead towards a future European Strategy Forum.
