The first Internet of Things (IoT) and Blockchain workshop will take place in the University’s R+D+i building this Thursday, starting at 3 p.m. This workshop will allow students and traditional SMEs to discover how these innovative technologies can be applied to their ideas and businesses. The workshop is held  under the Interreg PocTep IOTEC Project Framework “Building Technological Capacities in Industrial Applications of the Internet of Things”. The project is financed by the European Regional Development Fund (FEDER) under the Interreg V-A Spain-Portugal 2014-2020 (PocTep) programme. It promotes education in IoT technologies and boosts production and control processes in industrial solutions for SMEs through the application of these technologies.

A very interesting part of the event is the digital manufacturing workshop led by FABLAB Salamanca. The participants of this workshop will be taught about 3D design, additive and subtractive manufacturing, 3D printing and laser machining.

There will also be a talk-debate on Blockchain technology; its impact on industries and how we can benefit from it in the world of business. ViewNext and Everis company representatives will present their vision on this technology in a round table which I myself will lead. Finally, there will be an expository talk on the incorporation of IoT solutions in traditional manufacturing companies. This talk will be delivered by the Educatibot SME which will describe its own experience.

This workshop is undoubtedly a great opportunity to make IoT and Blockchain technologies more accessible  to businesses. We hope that they will provide attendees with valuable knowledge. Anyone who is interested in learning about these technologies is welcome.
