The way IoT helps to reach the Sustainable Development Goals

June 24, 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 4:30 pm

Digital for our planet

At the crossroads of both the European Digital Strategy and the European Green Deal, within the EU’s holistic approach to sustainable development, the Internet of Things (IoT) is already a technology enabler that drives both the digital transformation of European industry as well as sustainable growth. By focussing on key vertical sectors for promoting sustainability and innovation in healthcare, clean energy, and smart communities among others, the Commission is providing substantive support to address the challenges of digital transformation as well as the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals.

This CONNECT University Summer School session aims to highlight the views of actors from both the public and private sectors on the role of IoT systems, in the context of the Green Deal, the opportunities that could arise, the research and development perspective, and what needs to be done to ensure a smooth green transition of our economy and society.
