IoT Week, 4-7 June 2018, Bilbao, Spain. 

Four VICINITY partners (ATOS, CAL, ENERC, and UPM) participated in IoT Week, Bilbao. 

The VICINITY project was exhibited in the ATOS stand in which a rollup and information about the Open call was shown.

Some VICINITY representatives participated in the “Next Generation Internet Workshop: Turning Europe into a Service Platform”. The workshop was organized by The NGI Move project with the main goal of discussing and making proposals about desirable European scenarios in the information technology domain. 

VICINITY was part of the workshop organised by ENSO titled “Harvesting: A new challenge for powering IoT nodes”. The workshop covered three main parts, the first was an introduction of ENSO project, then several use cases were presented and finally, there was a round table where collaboration among projects was discussed. Since ENSO is targeting low layers of IoT nodes, their contribution can be of big help to enhance future functionalities and autonomy of ioT nodes. Moreover, the use cases presented, smart home, smart office and eHealth are relevant for the VICINITY project. In the roundtable, we have the opportunity to present project objectives and the Open Call as an opportunity and also an instrument to foster collaboration among project and partners contributing to the IoT ecosystem. During the QA time, we also introduced how important is simplify the access to technology creating inclusive and open environments that facilitate the development of services and the inclusion of new IoT infrastructures. Finally, it was also discussed how Communication strategies support the collaboration among projects and how the initiatives launched by the EC like the EC communication booster works and helps to set synergies.”
