In the near future the Internet and wireless technologies will connect different sources of information such as sensors, mobile phones and cars in an ever tighter manner.
In the near future the Internet and wireless technologies will connect different sources of information such as sensors, mobile phones and cars in an ever tighter manner. The number of devices which connect to the Internet is – seemingly exponentially – increasing. These billions of components produce consume and process information in different environments such as logistic applications, factories and airports as well as in the work and everyday lives of people. The society need new, scalable, compatible and secure solutions for both the management of the ever more broad, complexly-networked Internet of Things, and also for the support of various business models.
The express aim of this SRA (Strategic Research Agenda) is both to create framework for study within the given field and also to clearly define the central research objectives.
The Finnish industry will pioneer the development of new products, services, and standards for IoT and will have a global competitive advantage due to its know-how and active cross-industrial co-operation.
The Finnish industry is a key contributor to IoT standards at IETF and other relevant forums, demonstrator of cutting-edge IoT technology, and generator of IoT products and profits in the global competitive market. The industry IPR portfolio covers the critical areas of IoT technology.
The academic partners are recognized as top-level institutions in IoT research. The SHOK is improving the competitiveness of Finland when facing the challenges of an aging population, high labor costs, and environmental issues and increasing globalization.
By 2017 the Finnish ICT industry is a recognized leader in the IoT domain due to its expertise in standards, software, devices, and business models integrating and combining various IoT verticals for diverse industry segments.
We live in a world surrounded by tens of billions of devices that interoperate and integrate smoothly with the conventional Internet, provide secure and reliable services, enhance the life of people in healthcare, smart homes, industry automation, and environmental monitoring. The IoT is self-organizing, easy to use, harvests energy from the environment and is able to operate even in disaster scenarios where the network is partitioned.

TIVIT gathers the various projects and plans from these spheres into wider research programmes, raises the bar and level of expectations of innovation, gives rise to new study in the least-researched areas and then obtains additional funding from private and public donors in order to still further enhance the quality and success of each and every project.
