Creating trust in wireless solutions and increasing their social acceptance are major challenges to achieve the full potential of the Internet of Things (IoT).

Therefore, SCOTT – Secure COnnected Trustable Things, a pan-European effort with 57 key partners from 12 countries (EU and Brazil), will provide comprehensive cost-efficient solutions of wireless, end-to-end secure, trustworthy connectivity and interoperability (Technology Readiness Level 6-7) to bridge the last mile to market implementation.

SCOTT will not just deal with ‘things that are connected‘, but with ‘trustable things that securely communicate‘, i.e. things interconnected by dependable wireless technology and valuing the end-users‘ privacy rules.

The project utilizes a clearly use-case driven approach with 15 use cases from different areas of high relevance to European society and industry; a specific focus will be put on cross-domain use cases and heterogeneous environments, emphasizing 5G and cloud computing aspects to build up digital ecosystems to achieve a broader market penetration.

Tangible results from all use cases will ultimately be shown to a broader public via more than 20 demonstrators all over Europe.

Horizon 2020


IoT will change the bases of competition

SCOTT aims to extend the Internet of Things:

  • for wirelessly connected
  • smart sensors and actuators
  • to be used in building & home / smart infrastructure, mobility, health domains
  • ensuring safety and security, privacy and trustability

Key solutions in SCOTT will be developed:

  • by using an eco-system with re-usable building blocks
  • targeting higher Technology Readiness Levels (TRL 6-7)
  • aiming at strengthening European leadership and market opportunities
