The main result achieved with the IOTEC project is the consolidation and development of academic and technical skills of the participating partners. Moreover, each of the objectives will have the following results:
First, the creation of international work groups that establish global links and connections between the centers in the two regions, with specific training programs and doctorates in IoT technologies. These work groups will generate an important scientific output, which is expected to exceed 30 academic documents published by actors in science and technology systems. Secondly, the direct work of these groups with SMEs in the region involved in one of the ICT areas which will have the greatest possibilities in the future, will lead to an improvement in their international competitiveness. At least 20 ICT SMEs and 10 industrial SMEs from each region will benefit directly from training and advice coming from the IOTEC project, while this number of SMEs which will benefit indirectly is expected to be multiplied by three. Third, the interregional action plan will result in a return of investments through the funding of cross-border, international and interterritorial projects in IoT that involve different actors in the region. Moreover, an increase in the number of scientific documents on the IoT, published by actors of science and technology systems.
