On 21st of January 2019, Cork Institute of Technology’s Nimbus Research Centre sponsored by SteriTrack (MatrixIT), will host Beyond IoT 2.

Bringing Silicon Valley to Ireland, this event offers a unique opportunity for multi-nationals, SMEs, start-ups, entrepreneurs, and academics to hear what international, battle-tested entrepreneurs, technologists, investors, and dedicated researchers expect from the next wave of technology innovation and investment, and to learn how their organisations can benefit.

The event has proven to be extremely beneficial for networking and forming collaborations particularly in industry research where SMEs can access funding through Technology Gateways. Start-up companies are encouraged to attend with a full discount. 

Nimbus aims to capitalise on the success of last years sold out event by delivering an even bigger and better event in 2019 with an impressive line-up of speakers from across the Atlantic and Europe, bringing technology gurus from Silicon Valley and other global players to Cork.

They include Vitaly Golomb who addressed the inaugural Beyond IOT,  John Biggs (TechCrunch), Dave Troy (the man who saved Twitter!), Jon Soberg (Expansive Ventures), Staurt Hillston (ConCap), Helen McBreen (Atlantic Bridge) and more.

Topics will include Internet of Things, Blockchain, Space, Security, Artificial Intelligence, Augmented/Virtual Reality, Funding and Business Expansion. Clinics will provide a unique opportunity to get expert advice from field experts in technology, investment, funding avenues, entrepreneurship and academic research.

These sessions will provide invaluable advice and guidance on how attendees can facilitate investment, drive technology innovation, create collaborations and foster new commercial relationships.

Kieran Gleeson, CEO and Founder of Freight Station who attended Beyond IOT in 2018 said, "We were delighted to hear about the technological advances that are being made right now, providing start-up companies with new opportunities in new spaces. The speakers were fascinating and their insights were extremely valuable to our own technology roadmap. We can’t wait to attend again in 2019.” 

The event is approved by Engineers Ireland providing Continuous Professional Development (CPD) in areas relevant to the professional development of engineers.

CIT’s Nimbus Research Centre is Ireland’s largest IoT centre and  delivers over 60 IoT projects per annum for Irish industry.
