More than IoT the: IoT+ Network
Become part of Germany’s digital strategy. The IoT+Network helps you scale and connect your business while the ecosystem drives Germany’s transformation further into a digital hub..
The BMWK justifies the creation of a Digital Agency in their digital strategy 2025 by analyzing several facts:
- In modern society, technology and data are of increasing importance, and they have impacted various facets of life including communication, commerce, education, and many others. As a result of the ability to collect, process, and analyze large amounts of data, new possibilities for innovations and problem-solving have emerged for both individuals and organizations.
- The increased efficiency, productivity, and competitiveness that come with the use of digital technologies can drive economic growth and contribute to the overall development of a country. This is particularly true for Germany, a country that stands out for its strong industrial and technological base. By leveraging its technological strength and promoting the use of digital technologies, the country could see a significant increase in its GDP.
- The challenges faced by society today often require collaborative and interdisciplinary solutions. The isolated approach to problem-solving, where organizations or individuals work in silos, is no longer effective in a rapidly changing and interconnected world. Working together and sharing resources, knowledge, and expertise can help to create more comprehensive and effective solutions that address complex problems in a timely manner.
The Digital Hub Initiative from the BMWK was created to focus on twelve specific areas with one goal in mind: establishing Germany as a leading digital location. The collaboration between start-ups, established companies, research institutions, and experts created a unique and innovative network that can help drive the country’s transformation into a digital hub.
This is where the IoT+Network comes into the picture. As a collaboration between IoT companies, universities, and Berlin Partner für Wirtschaft und Technologie is aimed at driving the development and adoption of the Internet of Things Technology. The founding members (Team Neusta, Next Big Thing, MotionLab.Berlin, BuildingMinds, CODE University of Applied Sciences, and the HTW University of Applied Sciences) bring together a range of expertise and resources to create an ecosystem that supports the growth and innovation of IoT.
So far it has been 2 years of matchmaking companies, creating collaboration projects, and showcasing the benefits that correct IoT implementation can bring to any activity. The advantages that members find within the IoT+Network are increasing every week since connections are made with the government, financial institutions, and research organizations.
