PETRAS is the EPSRC IoT Research Hub.
The PETRAS Internet of Things Research Hub is a consortium of nine leading UK universities which will work together to explore critical issues in privacy, ethics, trust, reliability, acceptability, and security in IoT. Funding for the Hub includes a £9.8 million grant from the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) which will be boosted by partner contributions to approximately £23 million in total. This project also runs in collaboration with Digital Catapult’s IoTUK programme.
The PETRAS IoT Hub, is led by UCL and includes Imperial College London, Lancaster University, University of Oxford, University of Warwick, Cardiff University, University of Edinburgh, University of Southampton, and University of Surrey.
The IoTUK programme is working with PETRAS to disseminate the work that is coming out of the programme to businesses, government and for further academic research.
