The UK government has launched a national programme called IoTUK which it said will “amplify” the UK’s Internet of Things (IoT) capability.
IoTUK will be all about pushing IoT entrepreneurship, the government said, and will collaborate with organisations in a wide range of fields, including smart cities, healthcare and industrial applications.
The initiative will also focus on enabling the UK’s businesses and public sector to make advances in their IoT capabilities, specifically in areas such as security and trust, data interoperability, investment justification and design development.
IoTUK will host three workshops and events across the UK over the coming months for organisations in the IoT sector to get involved.
The first is IoTUK Case Study Open Call, which will highlight IoT projects that have delivered proven value for businesses and citizens.
