With the increasing miniaturization of communication devices and the proliferation of technologies such as smart phones or sensor networks, the concept of an Internet of Things (IoT) is becoming a reality, especially with their integration into Smart Cities.

The interdisciplinary nature of IoT work requires understanding, coordinating, supporting and engaging not only ICT, but also other areas such as biotechnology or nanotechnologies, that provide the right context in which IoT concepts can be embedded to provide solutions that can benefit society at large.

SMART-ACTION supports the development of strategic research agendas and serve as an enabler for the dissemination and further integration of results into future research and industrial developments, while coordinating international efforts.

The main objective of SMART-ACTION is to provide support for International Road Mapping of the Research Agenda and Policies of IoT as part of the Future Internet Technological Development and to increase the uptake of European industry and businesses related to IoT, serving the Lisbon Agenda.
