Advancing the UK’s global leadership in the Internet of Things

Convening and amplifying the UK’s IoT industry to facilitate business and economic growth


Powered by Digital Catapult and Future Cities Catapult, IoTUK is a programme of activities that seeks to advance the UK’s global leadership in the IoT and increase the adoption of high quality IoT solutions throughout industry and the public sector.

It is a national programme that is designed to accelerate the UK’s IoT capability and is part of the Government’s £40m investment in IoT.

IoTUK plays a central role in enabling IoT entrepreneurship and collaborates with organisations in a wide range of fields including cities, health and industrial applications. It focuses on enabling the UK’s businesses and public sector to make advances in creating their IoT capability, specifically in areas such as security and trust, data interoperability, investment justification and design development.

IoTUK works with IoT businesses, academia and innovators in three key ways:

1. Developing IoT case studies

IoTUK highlights IoT projects that are implemented, and have delivered real, proven value for business and citizens, so other IoT adopters can build upon these successful experiences.

2. Convening local IoT innovation challenges

IoTUK partners work with organisations across the UK to deliver a series of local IoT innovation challenges and rapid incubation activities. These partner organisations are working in their local areas to deliver a programme of support, mentoring and offer startups and scaleups access to low power wide area network (LPWAN) testbeds on which they can prototype their products and services.

3. Running investor events

IoTUK runs investor events in order to introduce the investor community to high calibre startups and scaleups. The aim is initiate mutually beneficial relationships that give fledgling IoT businesses access to funding to develop their IoT solutions.
