Working in partnership with the Scottish Local Government Digital Office, CENSIS is supporting the delivery of a fortnightly, six-part webinar series on how local authorities in Scotland can use IoT to manage and optimise their infrastructure.
Staff from CENSIS will be involved in each session, offering guidance and support around smart infrastructure applications across a range of local government services. The sessions, hosted on Microsoft Teams, will focus on key elements of IoT implementation including benefits and use cases.
Beginning on 25 August 2021 and continuing fortnightly until 3 November 2021, this online series takes place every second Wednesday at 10:00.
The webinars are aimed exclusively at people working in Scottish local authorities. Delegates do not need a technical background or be planning an IoT project to take part.
