Earlier this year North, R3-IoT Limited and CENSIS commissioned Intelligens Consulting to undertake research into the rollout and adoption of IoT networks and any barriers preventing take-up.

Places are limited so register early to avoid disappointment. Keynote will be delivered by Iain Stewart MP, Deputy Secretary of State for Scotland, Scotland Office.


With a focus on IoT in the public sector – in particular, how local authorities can use IoT to strengthen council services while reducing costs and increasing productivity – this webinar will explore the incorporation of IoT as part of a wider smart place/smart city strategy. Exemplar case studies of IoT in Scotland across a range of end markets will also be presented.


On the day, you will hear report recommendations that will help you overcome deployment barriers, make a commercial business case, understand the RoI achievable through investment in IoT, reduce exposure to risk, manage change, identify procurement strategies, and find partners to deliver your IoT solution.


This event will be of particular interest to:
