IoT and Business Transformation Summer School

Take the opportunity to join this EIT Digital Academy summer course to learn how to turn ideas into business using the latest insights on new technologies. Do a deep-dive in the technology and business models that drives the digital economy.

Does your company need to react to market, business and technology changes? Do you need to understand digital transformation to still be in business? Learn how disruptive technologies have an impact on markets and businesses, and how business models are changing.

In this course the focus is on Internet of Things (IoT) as a main driver for future digital infrastructures. With the advances of ICT, billions of “things” will collaborate through a reliable, efficient and secure network, using distributed storage and computing resources.

Fully functioning IoT requires new technical solutions in three large technology areas. Firstly, embedded systems, for energy efficient sensing and actuation. Secondly, communication and networked system for connecting the huge number of devices. And thirdly computing, data analytics and visualization for the IoT-based applications.
