About Us

The IoT Initiative is a joint effort by a number of organisations from within the University of Edinburgh, including Information Services, the School of Informatics, and Corporate Services. It is supported by City of Edinburgh Council and several private sector organisations.

  • IoT Programme Board

    The Programme Board is responsible for overseeing the University’s IoT Programme and for giving consideration and guidance regarding programme implementation activities and projects, ensuring these deliver against the IoT Programme Strategy.

    The IoT Initiative is multi-disciplinary and is being delivered with expertise and oversight drawn from across the University through a number of focused Action Groups:
    • Security and Privacy

    • Teaching and Learning
  • Coordination Group

    The Coordination Group (CoG) undertakes informal knowledge-sharing and monitoring of the Action Groups.
