The IoT Week originated in the IoT European Research Cluster (IERC) and has become the pre-eminent event in Europe attracting industry and research from around the world to showcase and discuss the Internet of Things of today and of the future. IoT Week 2015 is devoted to creation of ecosystems, partnerships and value chains across the domains to ensure rapid deployment of interoperable and replicable IoT solutions.
IoT Week 2015 will contribute to understanding of the future of the Internet of Things in large scale deployments considering the technological dimension but also user acceptance, security and privacy, business models, etc. As such, it will pave the way for the future European Internet of Things Large Scale Pilots (LSP) envisioned for the Horizon 2020 Work Programme 2016-17.
The IoT Week 2015 takes place right after the best night of the whole year to be in Lisbon: the night of June 12th to 13th (that extends throughout the weekend)! Every year the city of Lisbon celebrates its patron saint's day, St. Anthony, and hosts a diverse programme that combines traditional and folk events, with other more recent and eclectic ones.
