AIOTI: Building bridges with business community

The Alliance for Internet of Things Innovation (AIOTI) was initiated by the European Commission in 2015 to strengthening the dialogue and interaction between Internet of Things (IoT) stakeholders in Europe and to contribute to the creation of a dynamic European IoT ecosystem.
The alliance further aims to foster experimentation, replication, and deployment of IoT; support the convergence and interoperability of IoT standards; gather evidence on market obstacles for IoT deployment; and to map and bridge global, EU, and member states' IoT innovation activities.
This presentation introduces the Alliance for Internet of Things Innovation (AIOTI) and elaborates on how AIOTI builds bridges with stakeholders and business community in the area of Internet of Things.
