Digitalization, including the integration of networking capabilities into physical products, is no longer just affecting the consumer electronics industry. Terms like »Internet of Things«, »Smart Infrastructure«, »Smart City« or »Smart Mobility« are just examples for the diversity of buzzwords that are used. But what do these buzzwords mean for companies and cities, particularly regarding their product portfolio and their offered services?
In the consortium project we aim to get answers to these and many other questions:
Creating economic and technological transparency regarding current and future potential of smart products, systems and services
Exploring and analyzing market and technology trends and possible game-changing business models
Promoting valuable exchange and networking between the most relevant industry partners and ambitious cities
