There is little doubt that the Internet-of-Things means another big change for business. Some say it might eclipse the Internet when it comes to industry disruption and creation of new commercial opportunities, so you won’t be surprised to see we’ve got some of the UK’s most innovative and successful companies working with us on the HAT, either as project partners or members of our Industry Advisory Board.
We are open to collaborations with new companies, large and small, who want to engage with the project team and work with us on the project. So if you would like to get close to the research, build apps on the HAT infrastructure or try out new products and services in this unique environment, please contact us.
