Successful Innovation in the Internet of Things

The final Pitch-In event which will showcase how collaborations between universities & industry has encouraged the uptake of IoT technologies across four key thematic areas – Manufacturing, Energy Systems, Smart Cities and Health and Wellbeing.

Pitch-In aims to identify ways to encourage the successful development, introduction and further exploitation of the Internet of Things (IoT). A number of IfM-led mini projects have explored how digitalisation and the adoption of IoT can transform the manufacturing industry.

This conference marks the culmination of the three-year Pitch-In programme, which has been funded by Research England’s Connecting Capability Fund.

It has brought together the universities of Cambridge, Sheffield, 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).


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.
