Session 1: Data Sovereignty and the role of IoT

This session includes a panel discussion focused on:

Technology: how IoT applications and use cases will be affected by data sovereignty developments; addressing the scalability, replicability and interoperability of IoT applications; and how IoT can support data sovereignty and privacy e.g. the IoT-enabled data marketplaces, data lakes etc.

Governance: for platforms facilitating sharing services; use cases and domain examples; will data sovereignty developments like GAIA-X project and IDS require modifications in EU governance, rules and regulations, and what are the differences with US and Chinese solutions?

Standards: can existing IoT standards accommodate the data sovereignty developments or are modifications needed in areas such as of data ontologies and platform interoperability, especially considering developments such as GAIA-X as a federated and open data infrastructure platform?

Session 2: Beyond 5G and applications in cross-vertical industry domains

The session includes a panel discussion focused on:

Technology: how will converging tech including 5G, IoT/IIoT, AI, robotics, automation and cloud support vertical and cross-vertical applications?

Research: how research in the context of the Horizon Europe SNS (Smart Networks and Service) partnership and Horizon Europe programme contribute to this technology convergence.

Governance: does this converged world require changes in EU governance, rules and regulations?

Standards: can existing IoT standards accommodate using these converged approaches in vertical and cross-vertical applications?

Panel structure:

Moderator: Colin Wilcock, 5G IA Chairman

Introductory speech: Alexander Bentkus, 5G ACIA

Representative of verticals (ZVEI)
