IoT-i: IoT initiative

The Internet of Things (IoT) is one of the most important areas of a Future Internet with high potential to positively impact European economy and society.


The IoT initiative (IoT-i), a EU Framework Programme 7 project, started in September 2010, brings together key actors from all relevant but currently fragmented IoT communities in Europe to work jointly towards a common vision of the Internet of Things. It represents the first serious attempt in building a unified IoT community in Europe, going across boundaries of disparate technology sectors, in order to create a joint European strategic vision of the Internet of Things and aligning this vision with the current developments on the Future Internet.


IoT-i pursues the achievement of the following strategic objectives:

  • Creating a joint strategic and technical vision for the IoT in Europe that encompasses the currently fragmented sectors of the IoT domain holistically.
  • Contribute to the creation of an economically sustainable and socially acceptable environment in Europe for IoT technologies and respective R&D activities.
  • Creating an environment that favours international adoption of European IoT technology.
