Like! 7th steering committee at Suffolk County Council

12 April 2019 - Published by Evite van Winkoop
On 1-2 April 2019, the Like! consortium met again for their 7th steering committee in Suffolk, the United Kingdom. All 10 partners from 5 countries were present to discuss the various pilots in Like! This 7th meeting was the last gathering before the Final Conference on October 3th 2019, so all pilots are developing in full speed.

Besides discussing the development of the Like! project, special attention was paid to the transnationality of various pilots. Also recent projects such as the International IoT hackathon in Emmen (NL) and the Edison 365 project in Suffolk were presented. New ideas were pitched, such as the development of transnational magazines and the Like! final conference on the 3th of October 2019 in Groningen (NL).

We visited British Telecom (BT) at Adastral Park in Ipswich, a showcase of innovation. Very exciting to see SMART homes, stores with SMART goods, and the newest technology applied to various situations. A special thanks to Stephanie Thorne (University of Suffolk) and Stuart Wyse (BT) to give us such a warm welcome in Suffolk and host us at their venues.

We are looking forward to meet again in Groningen on October 3th for the final conference of the Like! project.
