IoTUK Boost: Sunderland Software City
About the IoTUK Boost: Sunderland Software City activity
- Both ‘aspiring’ and ‘existing’ IoT companies.
- IoT End Beneficiaries – Our boost would cover the following sector areas: river & marine, social services, emergency services and smarter working. Through our IoTUK Boost we expect our end beneficiary users; such as ports, registered social landlords, blue-light services and business parks, to be more educated toward the benefits of IoT and how deployment and use can impact their activities.
- General Public – IoT understanding is key to acceptance and engagement. To this end we will commission some IoT artwork. This will take IoT feeds from familiar public spaces to generate visual effects. The purpose of this is to demonstrate the non-invasive nature of IoT sensors.
On the March 22, the IoTUK Boost Pitch & Social will assemble a showcase of the newest and brightest Internet of Things ideas developed by North East companies. If you have a great IoT idea or an already established IoT product/service, or just want to find out about some great IoT ideas you should come along and get involved.
At this event you will hear short presentations from a wide variety of companies pitching new IoT products and services, hear about three new IoT business opportunities from Nissan, the Environment Agency and North East Combined Authority and meet with entrepreneurs, investors and those interested in the possibilities of the Internet of Things.
At this event we will also be unveiling an IoT-inspired art installation developed by local artists to celebrate the potential and legacy of the IoTUK Boost programme. The event is free to attend and everyone is invited to come along, enjoy a drink and find out more about IoT in the North East. More details can be found here.
Our IoTUK Boost will cover the North East and Tees Valley Local Enterprise Partnerships (LEP) areas. We expect learning from the Boost to be shared across the UK.
