The purpose of the workshop is to take stock and consolidate on the key messages from the previous workshops on IoT and Edge computing, organised by the Horizon 2020 project NGIoT, held on 11 September and 7/8 December 2020.

NGIoT invites European industry and the public sector to reflect on the results from these workshops and convey their position or provide a spontaneous feedback on the role of Edge Computing as they experience it in their relevant sectors. Feedback could be provided orally or through quote and/or expression of interest in supporting the future strategic discussion on Edge Computing at the European level.
