90 attendees exchanged with high-level EU and US experts at the “Trans-Atlantic Symposium on ICT Technology and Policy – 5G Networks, Big Data, Internet of Things and Cyber-Physical Systems for a Smart Society” in Minneapolis, MN, USA on 19th-20th June 2017. The Symposium was organised by PICASSO, an EU-funded project, co-sponsored by the US National Science Foundation (NSF), Intelligent Manufacturing Systems (IMS), the IEEE Control System Society and the University of Minnesota, and hosted by the Technological Leadership Institute of University of Minnesota. The PICASSO project is coordinated by inno TSD and involves renown partners from the EU and the US.
The Symposium held in Minneapolis brought together outstanding representatives of the academic, industrial and policy makers communities from both the EU and the US in the areas of 5G Networks, Big Data, Internet of Things and Cyber-Physical Systems, covering the spectrum of activities from research strategic prioritization, research assessments, and pre-competitive research, via commercialisation opportunities, to policy issues impacting the ICT area. The main objective of the symposium was to explore the connections and interrelations among PICASSO’s technology focus areas, and between these areas and policy, within an EU/US collaboration context.
The PICASSO project will build on the discussions of the Symposium over the next year and develop targeted recommendations for international collaboration in ICT and the related technology/policy nexus.
