A review of the Pitch-In programme, which has encouraged uptake of IoT technologies through collaborations between universities and industry

About this event

Join us for our final dissemination event for the Pitch-In (Promoting the Internet of Things via Collaboration between HEIs and Industry) programme.

This conference marks the culmination of the three-year programme, which has been funded by Research England’s Connecting Capability Fund. It has brought together the universities of Sheffield, Cambridge, Newcastle and Oxford to stimulate collaboration between academia and stakeholders across industry, commerce, and the public and third sectors. Its focus has been on solving problems related to innovation, adoption and skills in the Internet of Things (IoT).

IoT technology has the potential to influence many aspects of society and industry. The aim of Pitch-In has been to try to ensure that we build the ‘right’ sort of IoT systems that will contribute to creating sustainable communities, places and businesses in the long term. Of necessity, building these systems requires significant collaboration among all stakeholders.

Join us to find out how we have demonstrated the value of IoT to the UK’s Industrial Strategy. You’ll learn about the major findings and lessons learned: what worked and what didn’t. We’ll present the programme and the major outcomes from nearly 70 projects involving 80 partners and spread across four key thematic areas – Energy Systems, Smart Cities, Manufacturing, and Health and Wellbeing – along with foundational work that spans all themes.

Who should attend?

Anyone with an interest in collaborative working for IoT/digital innovation or adoption, or in IoT/digital skill transfer will find the contents of the conference highly relevant. In the course of Pitch-In we have worked with academics, consultants, small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), national catapults, local authorities, and public and third-sector service providers: attendees from any of these sectors will find points of reference and of interest among the topics discussed.

The event will also be of interest to knowledge exchange professionals working with IoT/digital technologies.
