The future technological developments will set several strategic choices related to new value networks and ecosystems, how value is created within companies and redistributed among industry players, countries and society. Intelligent connectivity is essential for the achievement of the United Nation’s (UN's) Broadband Commission agenda for 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals, having set deployment targets for 2025 to underline the importance of communication systems and networks on addressing economic growth and addressing social challenges. Moreover, IoT and edge computing can be used to support the European Green Deal and decrease energy and carbon footprint of various vertical industries. In particular, in the IoT domain the impact of the European Green Deal would be two-fold: (1) using IoT and Edge Computing technologies to improve the environment impact of other domains and (2) improving the energy footprint of IoT based systems, including its use and energy consumption, the disposal or refurbishing of obsolete devices, the design and manufacturing of energy and environment-friendly new devices.

Key Theme:

  • How IoT & Edge Computing and IoT & Edge Computing standards can be used to support the UN Sustainable Development Goals and European Green Deal?
