Research project in cooperation with Trier University of Applied Sciences on behalf of the Federal Ministry of Food and Agriculture
The digital transformation of the economy and society is in full swing and will intensify in the coming years. The networking of the analogue and virtual world plays an essential role in this respect. The Internet of Things (IoT) is the basic technology for many new application ideas and business models.
In this transformation process, medium-sized companies are acutely threatened by a shortage of skilled labour, as there are few graduates of computer science courses specialising in IoT. Often these few graduates are then poached away to the metropolitan regions by large corporations and are no longer available to smaller companies in rural areas.
Launch the IoT-Pilot project and offer a solution that facilitates access to the Internet of Things for SMEs and accelerates the development of first prototypes (rapid prototyping) Existing specialists are also to receive further training, making it easier for them to enter the new IoT technologies.
