The "Internet of Things Intitiative" (IoT-i)

abstract The Internet of Things (IoT) is one of the most important areas of a Future Internet with high potential to positively impact European economy and society. The IoT initiative (IoT-i), a EU Framework Programme 7 project, started in September 2010, brings together key actors from all relevant but currently fragmented IoT communities in Europe to work jointly towards a common vision of the Internet of Things. It represents the first serious attempt in building a unified IoT community in Europe, going across boundaries of disparate technology sectors, in order to create a joint European strategic vision of the Internet of Things and aligning this vision with the current developments on the Future Internet. IoT-i pursues the achievement of the following strategic objectives: (1) Creating a joint strategic and technical vision for the IoT in Europe that encompasses the currently fragmented sectors of the IoT domain holistically, (2) Contribute to the creation of an economically sustainable and socially acceptable environment in Europe for IoT technologies and respective R&D activities and (3) Creating an environment that favours international adoption of European IoT technology.
