The IoT European Large-Scale Pilots Programme
The IoT European Large-Scale Pilots Programme includes the innovation consortia that are collaborating to foster the deployment of IoT solutions in Europe through integration of advanced IoT technologies across the value chain, demonstration of multiple IoT applications at scale and in a usage context, and as close as possible to operational conditions.
The programme projects are targeted, goal driven initiatives that propose IoT approaches to specific real-life industrial/societal challenges. They are autonomous entities that involve stakeholders from supply side to demand side (STARTS IoT Co-Creation Hackathons), and contain all the technological and innovation elements, the tasks related to the use, application and deployment as well as the development, testing and integration activities.
The scope of IoT European Large-Scale Pilots Programme is to foster the deployment of IoT solutions in Europe through integration of advanced IoT technologies across the value chain, demonstration of multiple IoT applications at scale and in a usage context, and as close as possible to operational conditions. Specific Pilot considerations include
- Mapping of pilot architecture approaches with validated IoT reference architectures such as IoT-A enabling interoperability across use cases;
- Contribution to strategic activity groups that were defined during the LSP kick-off meeting to foster coherent implementation of the different LSPs.
- Contribution to clustering their results of horizontal nature (interoperability approach, standards, security and privacy approaches, business validation and sustainability, methodologies, metrics, etc.).
European IoT National Strategies
IoT European Large-Scale Pilots Programme includes projects addressing the IoT applications based on European relevance, technology readiness and socio-economic interest in Europe. Therefore, the programme also pays attention to European IoT National Strategies:
- Czech Republic;
- United Kingdom;
- Faroe Islands
- Bosnia and Herzegovina
- FYR Macedonia
