Capgemini was selected to coordinate the Next Generation IoT project, part of the European Commission’s Next Generation Internet (NGI) initiative, which aims to reinvent and reshape the internet for the third millennium and beyond. The project, called IoT-NGIN, will focus on enabling Europeans to confidently harness the power of the Internet of Things (IoT).

Funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme to the tune of EUR 8 million, IoT- NGIN brings together 19 partners from industry and the world of scientific and academic research and will last until September 2023. 

To bring the next generation IoT to life, Capgemini said it’s working on innovative research concepts alongside industry partners, research centres, specialised SMEs and Living Labs.

In order to create an interoperable IoT foundation at the European level and to ensure the security and privacy of data from connected objects, the IoT-NGIN project relies on innovation and technologies such as blockchain, autonomous Machine to Machine (M2M) communications, 5G communications optimisation, artificial intelligence and secure Edge cloud.

Capgemini is also responsible for communicating on the project and promoting its results to all stakeholders in the IoT community. With this new collaboration, Capgemini is continuing its missions to support the European Commission, which began in 2019 with the Phoenix project, focused on products for the security of energy infrastructures in Europe.
