IoT & Trust – Researchers Conference
Exploring the interplay of IoT adoption and trust

From 22 to 23 February 2017, a transdisciplinary conference took place at HIIG concerning the interplay of IoT and Trust. During this conference, nine scholars discussed their current research, approaches, and findings with peers and hand-picked industry practitioners – such as experts from startups and incumbents such as Cisco Systems. The conference consisted of three tracks that covered topics such as philosophical perspectives on trust and technologies and the necessities of regulation, trust in open collaboration communities, IoT networks and smart factory environments, and trust with regard to smart government. The concept of trust has been analysed from a transdisciplinary perspective, using legal, economic, sociological and technological approaches. The conference aimed to identify the challenges, opportunities, and limits of the adoption of the IoT in various fields, as an increasing number of IoT applications is being developed for consumers, the industry and public administration.

The contributions to this conference are documented within this Brochure (PDF).

About the project

Internet of Things: Entrepreneurship and eGovernment is a research project that is divided into two areas. First, IoT is examined from the perspective of technology adaptation and commercialisation—both by startups and established companies. Secondly, the question of how governments can use these applications themselves and what role regulation plays in the internet of things is explored. Find more information here.
