Connected Smart Objects and Robotics Networking Events


As part of the Horizon 2020 ICT calls, Innovate UK are organising two networking events, aiming to give opportunity to find out more about the different calls, gain key insight into current EU positions and have opportunity to discuss current and future projects in each field.

Internet of Things and Platforms for Connected Smart Objects:

The Horizon 2020 ICT 30 call has opened, with €51M available for large projects and coordination action in Internet of Things and Platforms for Connected Smart Objects. ICT 30 cuts across several LEIT-ICT technological areas (smart systems integration, cyber-physical systems, smart networks, big data) and brings together different generic ICT technologies and their stakeholder constituencies to develop technological platforms which will have a strong influence on the way in which we live and work.

This networking event will offer insight into how the H2020 process works, provide key details of the call, allow you to meet representatives of the PPPs and have the opportunity to flag your interest by presenting your credentials and/or outline project proposals.

Date: Thursday 27th November 2014
Time: 09:30 to 17:00
Location: Congress House, WC1B 3LS
