The annual IoT Week 2018 has been concluded on a positive note in Bilbao, Spain during the week of 4-7 June 2018. The event gathered each year an estimate of 500 participants from research centers, research projects, large industries, SMEs, developers, standards development organizations, policy makers, and IoT enthusiasts alike.
This year, bIoTope participated with the representation of the Aalto University School of Business team at the exhibition booth showcasing the project’s progress and the smart city pilots’ result. The booth has attracted ample attention from our fellow researchers as well as large industries’ key players and sparked interesting discussions surrounding the project an opportunities for new partnerships.
