EURADA’s initiative “Watify matchmaking event on Internet of Things”:


The European Association of Development Agencies (EURADA) will host an awareness-raising campaign on Internet of Things (IoT) on 15th of May 2017 in Brussels.

Internet of Things refers to the bridging of physical objects with the cyber dimension and it is what makes our devices “smart”. Its application offers benefits in many industrial sectors, particularly in manufacturing, transport, consumer goods, energy, agriculture and healthcare.

By bringing potential partners together, EURADA’s event fosters opportunities for inter-regional and cross-border cooperation between regional actors from the public and the private sector. The aim is to spur joint initiatives and partnerships or joint demonstration projects in Internet of Things, facilitating the technological transformation of Europe’s industry and the establishment of partnerships for industrial modernisation.

During the event, following topics will be particularly in focus: Applications, challenges and opportunities of the Internet of Things for SMEs; Inter-regional / cross-border value chains; Bilateral and multilateral meetings between public and private actors; Inter-regional / cross-border cooperation on targeted focus areas.

The event is funded by the European Commission and organised by Watify, in cooperation with EURADA, SEIMED, Impulse.Brussels and Emilia Romagna – Brussels representation office and the Enterprise Europe Network.
