The Internet of Things (IoT) is the next digital revolution. Billions of connected and smart things will enable new innovative applications and services at work, at home, all impacting our lives. The European Commission has been pioneering research in that area since 2009 and has used significant funding to address technical and societal challenges, e.g. to support inter-operability, limit costs, to avoid market fragmentation while increasing trust and security. The results of the last call was the support of 8 medium size projects which complement large projects from previous calls and forming a portfolio of about 15 projects for a total of 75M € EC support.

The Internet of Things European Research Cluster (IERC) was set up in 2010 to help to the coordination of all these projects. This booklet contains the portfolio of projects, which can help market stakeholders to be part of the growing IoT "business" . SMEs and start-ups, which want to innovate in the IoT area, might not have resources to invest in lengthy and costly research. They should consider exploiting and cooperating further with EU projects, which can offer ready-to-use solutions and best practices and even more when some solutions are free and open source.

In the booklet, you can find useful project results that you can further exploit to develop the Internet of Things growing market!
