Definition of a research and innovation policy leveraging Cloud Computing and IoT combination
Final report - Study
The report investigates the conditions enabling the European industry to actively participate in the development of the emerging IoT and Cloud combined ecosystems. On these premises, the report sets out a series of recommendations to meet Europe’s IoT-related research & innovation challenges and support or accelerate IoT adoption across a number of use cases and lead markets in Europe. It does so by: - Providing an overview of Europe’s IoT digital ecosystem, its current status and anticipates a suggested vision of the same ecosystem in 2020. - Focusing on the emerging markets and potential... business opportunities associated to the IoT and its combination with Cloud computing and Big Data technologies. - Developing a coherent IoT Research & Innovation Strategy by identifying the main research- and innovation-related challenges and suggesting the key investment policy options to achieve a successful strategy implementation. It further specifies a number of concrete actions and recommendations for the European Commission and other policy actors to meet the identified research & innovation challenges and successfully support market take-up of IoT in Europe over the next few years.
