The Internet of Things (IoT) is defined as a dynamic global network infrastructure with self-configuring capabilities based on standard and interoperable communication protocols where physical and virtual “things” have identities, physical attributes and virtual personalities, use intelligent interfaces and are seamlessly integrated into the information network. IoT has moved from being a futuristic vision to an increasing market reality both in China and Europe.
In this context, the EUCTP II will contribute to a three day event dedicated to EU-China IoT cooperation in Beijing from 31 August until 02 September 2015. This activity will have the support of market stakeholders to sketch recommendations for a joint action plan. Following the first two conferences organized in October 2014 and April 2015 in Shanghai and Lyon, the exchanges will provide important input for the EU-China Information Technologies, Telecommunications and Informatisation Dialogue.
Priority themes to be addressed will include IoT global opportunities as identified in the context of eHealth, smart cities, and industrial IoT applications under the topic Industry 4.0.
