IoT is all around us, infused into our everyday lives through constant connectivity. Our physical and virtual worlds are coming ever closer with the multitude of devices we use to improve our health, increase productivity, and make our lives easier. So many of our personal and business activities take place on the move and require our devices to pinpoint and track location. That’s where satellite navigation comes in. The European navigation system known as Galileo brings accuracy, reliability, and authentication benefits to IoT devices especially in urban environments.
Point.IoT brings Galileo and IoT together in an innovation programme designed to stimulate the fusion of these two technologies. 10 teams will be selected every year to tackle industry challenges and showcase the use of European positioning technologies in IoT. Starting with an action-packed two-day bootcamp in Paris, teams will then head home to be guided through a 3-month virtual sprint with multidisciplinary innovation mentoring. Each team will be coached through the process of developing technically robust solutions that have a clear path to market. A demo-day will close out the programme and celebrate the achievements of each of the teams.
What’s in it for the participants? In addition to the individual mentoring and networking opportunities, the top three teams will be selected to pitch their solutions at a leading investor roadshow in Europe. The top team overall will also be awarded a cash prize of €20,000! Applications to this year’s program can be made from 1 March – 17 May 2020.
