Put the kettle on and join CENSIS for a catch up over a virtual coffee and connect with other companies, researchers and stakeholders working in the same space.

Led by CENSIS Business Development Managers Rachael Wakefield and Stephen Milne, this coffee break will look at the concept of IoT for building ‘smart villages’ – communities that are using digital technologies including IoT networks to generate new business opportunities, strengthen existing ones, and ultimately drive sustainable local economic growth to help rural and/or remote communities remain competitive and viable.

Please register via Eventbrite

With the rollout of IoT networks across Scotland, the deployment of IoT infrastructure is already being used to revitalise and empower communities with a view to creating employment and attracting future investment. Examples already include opportunities such as maximising tourism, supporting farming and food production, promoting green recovery through environmental monitoring, connected mobility solutions for deliveries, EV charging, or public/active transport, generating renewable energy and developing energy cooperatives and many more.

The chat takes place online using Zoom. Please register via Eventbrite. After you register, and before the event takes place, we’ll send you a calendar invite that includes the Zoom link.
