FutureTech workshops 2019

26 June 2019 | Censis

CENSIS is delivering five Scottish Government-funded workshops focusing on the transformative potential of IoT across some of Scotland’s key growth industries. (For a full guide to IoT, read our ‘Getting started with IoT’ brochure.

The workshops will aim to educate and inform businesses and organisations about how to get started in IoT.   IoT technology will transform business operations across Scotland and impact every sector of the economy. It’s more important than ever that Scottish companies embrace what it has to offer.

With these Future Tech workshops, we are keen to develop strong links with industry to help share knowledge and break down some of the barriers commonly encountered with this technology. We also hope to identify some exciting new initiatives that we can develop and support in the future.”

Four sessions will take place across Scotland between August and October covering smart cities, smart buildings, tourism, and food and drink. They have been commissioned by the Scottish Government following the launch of its national IoT Scotland network in 2018.

The workshops will look at applying IoT to real world projects with a focus on user-services, quality outcomes and viable business cases. Following the events, CENSIS will progress a number of ideas generated by delegates, creating use case studies for each sector.
