bIoTope in a nutshell:
bIoTope (Building an IoT Open innovation Ecosystem for connected smart objects) is an RIA (Research and Innovation action) project funded by the Horizon 2020 programme, Call ICT30: Internet of Things and Platforms for Connected Smart Objects.

bIoTope lays the foundation for open innovation ecosystems, where companies can – with minimal investment – innovate by creating new Systems-of-Systems (SoS) platforms for connected smart objects. To achieve this goal, bIoTope provides the necessary standardised Open APIs to enable the publication, consumption and composition of heterogeneous information sources and services from across various platforms, including FI-WARE, OpenIoT, city dashboards, etc. This will foster new forms of co-creation of services ranging from simple data collection, processing, to context-driven, intelligent and self-adaptive support of consumers’ everyday work and life. bIoTope also establishes a governance roadmap for ecosystem orchestration to properly maintain, grow and sustain the socio-technical and business-wise bIoTope ecosystem.

bIoTope develops a dozen of smart city proofs-of-concept/pilots, implemented in three distinct cities/regions (Helsinki, Grand Lyon, Brussels Region). In order to engage local developer communities, a set of Open Calls will be organized from June to December 2017.
