Internet of Things (IoT) technology enables devices, such as everyday objects, machinery and systems to connect to the internet. The data gathered can then be used to inform, develop and shape future plans and processes.

This free webinar will be hosted jointly by South of Scotland Enterprise (SoSE) and the Scottish Government, where you will hear from industry experts, communities, businesses and organisations in Scotland who have used the data derived from this technology to identify and mitigate risks, maximise opportunities and become more productive, efficient and competitive.
