Live Showcase Open Call
IoTUK is looking for working IoT solutions that can bring the Internet of Things to life and demonstrate the UK’s position as a leader in this sector.
Powered by Digital Catapult, IoTUK is a programme that seeks to advance the UK’s global leadership in the Internet of Things (IoT) and increase the adoption of high quality IoT technologies and services throughout businesses and the public sector.
Have you got a disruptive or innovative IoT solution that illustrates the market potential for IoT?
Do you want to actively demonstrate the benefit of your IoT solution through a real deployment? If so, IoTUK wants to hear from you.
