Irish industries encouraged to join the Internet of Things revolution at IOT World in Berlin

Irish industries encouraged to join the Internet of Things revolution at IOT World in Berlin


For immediate release



The world’s largest Internet of Things (IoT) event, IoT World is coming to Europe, and Insight Ireland, Centre for Data Analytics is at the heart of the action as an official event partner.

Dr Martin Serrano of Insight@NUI Galway says, “The Internet of Things offers tremendous opportunities to business and industry. In the US, progress in the area of IoT is driven and lead by industry. In Europe, researchers had leading the charge and now is the time to the Industry to take this lead.” 


Dr Serrano is an internationally recognised leader in the field of IoT.


Research in IoT extends and improves the way that devices can communicate with one another. IoT is a key driver of innovations such as Smart Cities but now also plays a major role in all aspects of industry.


"IoT solutions and technology have matured after all these years of excellent research and it is time for industry to take over and transform knowledge into products" Dr. Serrano said.



IoT World Europe is an event aiming to raise industry awareness about the possibilities and the latest developments in IoT technology and is the perfect venue for industry and researchers talking to each other.


Insight Ireland is one of Europe’s leading data science centres and has major IoT projects, especially in its centre in NUI Galway. Dr Serrano, has been involved in the IoT World events in the US, and was instrumental in bringing the event to Europe.


“Right now, there are industry ready technologies that have been developed and are already in use, but companies simply don’t know about them,” Dr Serrano says. “The fact that IoT World is coming to Europe in 2015 is a huge opportunity to close this knowledge gap. We are very proud Insight Ireland is a partner, it is a major coup.”
