Gemini centre on IoT at UiO


The purpose of the GEMINI Centre is to effectively build a larger Norwegian academic environment for IoT with the highest possible quality for both research and research driven innovation in meeting the need for the best possible solution to the IoT challenges in society and to contribute to new solutions that can increase value creation and profitability both for partners in industry and the public sector.There is a growing professional activity within the Internet of Things (IoT) in all participating organizations, as well as in businesses and governments, both nationally and internationally. The center will address the growing IoT market in general, and will especially emphasize technology development in relation to the needs of demanding industrial applications. Timely and secure access to IoT Infrastructure and IoT based services and data, and their utilization, are of interest to both the private and public sectors, as well as individuals, to support increased value creation, improved services, and to promote new development opportunities. List of centers is maintained by Sintef here.
