  16. 16. SCOPE
  17. 17. “ Internet of Things” ‘ Things that have more and more information associated with them, and are beginning to sense, communicate, network and produce new information ” For this competition we take a data value-chain view: from “things” through applications and services to end users
  18. 18. Scope <ul><li>A data-centric IoT convergence scenario </li></ul><ul><li>An in-depth study of the scenario, end-to-end </li></ul><ul><li>A real/realistic context in which the applicants will carry out the study </li></ul>
  19. 19. IoT Convergence: A definition <ul><li>Increased accessibility to data from or about ‘things’ </li></ul><ul><li>easy and harmonised access (across organisation, application domain or sector boundaries) </li></ul><ul><li>Data and Information “value chains” </li></ul>

  28. 28. Starting points.... Users, Customers Business models, opportunities Technology
  29. 29. Springboards.... <ul><li>Where are the connected “things”? Where is the data from “things”? Is it something I can control/access/work with? </li></ul><ul><li>Which ones have untapped potential? And what is it? </li></ul><ul><li>How can access to that data be made easier and more harmonized? What are the (your?) barriers to achieving that? </li></ul><ul><li>Where are the blockages to data and information value chains? </li></ul><ul><li>What would happen as a result?
