Next-Generation Internet of Things and Edge Computing

The Fireside Chat workshop on 9 March 2021 mobilised and connected key stakeholders and experts to advance the design of a strategic European vision for the Next-Generation Internet of Things (IoT) and Edge Computing with a market window of over 5 years.

Edge computing is the logical evolution of the dominant cloud computing model, avoiding the transfer of mission-critical data to the cloud, supporting resilience, real-time operations, security, privacy and protection while at the same time reducing energy consumption and carbon footprint. In edge computing, the processing moves from a centralised point, closer to (or even onto) the IoT device itself, the 'edge' or periphery of a network.

This event report summarises the issues discussed at the meeting.
