IERC - Activity Chains

The European Research Cluster on the Internet of Things has created a number of activity chains to favour close cooperation between the projects addressing IoT topics and to form an arena for exchange of ideas and open dialog on important research challenges. The activity chains are defined as work streams that group together partners or specific participants from partners around well defined technical activities that will result into at least one output or delivery that will be used in addressing the IERC objectives.
