Aalto Industrial Internet Campus part of the new Nordic IoT Hub

Several Aalto Industrial Internet Campus professors participate in the new Nordic IoT Hub. The Hub provides opportunities to researchers and doctoral students for short research visits, joint events, and joint research initiatives such as sharing data sets.

Aalto University, KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Lund University, Norwegian University of Science and Technology and Technical University of Denmark have jointly founded a new Nordic IoT Hub HI2OT.  

HI2OT promotes Nordic collaboration in Industrial IoT and increases the capacity of the participating organizations by creating a critical mass to facilitate the development of a world-leading Nordic research environment in Industrial IoT. 

HI2OT will become a virtual Hub that connects the partner organisations’ local professional networks, facilitating knowledge exchange and pooling of infrastructure. The Hub will provide access to professional networks and costly infrastructure (e.g., Smart Factory labs), organize events for experience exchange  and for transfer of knowledge to the industry.

HI2OT will create a platform from which the partners can more effectively project themselves at EU and global level. The platform will organize joint participation in EU brokerage events and EU information meetings,  joint participation in EU roadmapping activities, industry/academia matchmaking, outreach and communication events. 

HI2OT will establish an integrated approach to IIoT research and training, bringing together world-class expertise in multiple disciplines. This will be achieved through researcher mobility to promote research collaboration, a Summer School in IIoT, advanced courses dedicated to PhD and MSc students, industrial training courses in IIoT, and the development of an Industrial IoT curriculum to be taught in the Nordic countries’ universities.

The Hub has received funding from NordForsk. NordForsk is an organisation under the Nordic Council of Ministers that provides funding for and facilitates Nordic cooperation on research and research infrastructure.
