The Internet of Things (IoT) and cyber-physical systems (CPS) are key pillars for future “smart” technological systems and industrial infrastructures, and their enormous potential has been recognized in the EU and the US.

The PICASSO project has developed a comprehensive analysis of the drivers, needs, and research and innovation priorities in the EU and the US in these technology domains that will be used as a foundation for the development of promising EU-US collaboration opportunities.

To discuss, validate, and refine our findings, PICASSO has held an interactive webinar on the topic. The main objectives of the webinar were to (a) present and discuss our findings with IoT, CPS, and application experts from all over the world, and to (b) generate new ideas and recommendations for EU-US research and innovation collaboration.
