The IoT is now a global happening that is requiring cooperation at international level to address its key challenges. Europe has established as a priority the international cooperation on IoT research and innovation. The work revolves around aligning strategies and plans for IoT globalisation but also exploring differentiations, and specificities for local exploitation of
IoT. Notice: EU is cooperating with African countries on cost-effective open IoT innovation; Europe is supporting Brazil to build-up its IoT ecosystem supported onEUbest practices; the EU-China IoT Advisory Group is active on pushing global IoT standards while developing competitive IoT solutions; the EU-Japan joint cooperation follows-on on the integration/federation of IoT
with Big Data and Cloud; and the EU-Korea engagement is looking at major global IoT standardisation activities; EU-US cooperation is active especially via the respective global IoT initiative frameworks, the AIOTI and IIC. And cooperation is expected to start with India on the vision of a connected and smart IoT based system for their economy, society, environment and global needs.
