Internet of Things and Business Transformation

EIT Digital Infrastructure Summer School

July 29 - August 11 Apply now
Stockholm

In this Summer School the focus is on Internet of Things (IoT) as a main driver for future digital infrastructures. With the advances of ICT, billions of “things” will collaborate through a reliable, efficient and secure network, using distributed storage and computing resources.

Fully functioning IoT requires new technical solutions in three large technology areas. Firstly, embedded systems, for energy efficient sensing and actuation. Secondly, communication and networked system for connecting the huge number of devices. And thirdly computing, data analytics and visualization for the IoT-based applications.

With the development of IoT solutions the business ecosystems of the traditional telecommunication sector are challenged but also provides new opportunities for existing as well as emerging industries.

This Summer School will train the participants to analyse the implications that this new technology area might have on society, on individuals and on businesses and to identify emerging business roles and opportunities.

The Summer School will be held at Bosön Conference site, Lidingö, Sweden.
