The Internet of Things International Forum (IoT Forum) aims at developing an Internet of Things ecosystem that addresses technology barriers along with business and societal challenges to establish conditions for a worldwide market for the Internet of Things. It does this through promoting international dialogue and cooperation between diverse actors from industry, research institutions, and government as well as across sectors.
IoT Forum shares Smart Aarhus’ cross-sectoral and multi-stakeholder model as well as the same holistic approach in using technology to address a combination of societal, economic, and environmental needs, which reflect the principles of Smart Aarhus. Iot Forum pays particular attention to the respect of privacy and protecting personal data of citizens.
Iot Forum was founded in 2013 by an international group of organizations including the Alexandra Institute, who is a member of the Smart Aarhus and currently chairing IoT Forum.
