What is Wise-IoT ?

Wise-IoT is a collaboration project between Europe and Korea. For EU side, it is funded under the H2020 framework program for research of the European Commission. It aims at deepening the interoperability and interworking of IoT existing systems. Use cases driven, the project will use the experiences available in the consortium to build a comprehensive mediation framework that can be used between various IoT systems.

Wise-IoT also aims to build up federated and interoperable platforms ensuring end-to-end security and trust for reliable business environments with a multiplicity of IoT applications. Building synergies with national and international initiatives in both Europe and Korea, the project acts on the field of standardisation, fostering IoT development and interoperability.

Objectives ?

The wise-IoT overall objectives are thus to:

  • Provide a world-wide interoperable Internet-of-Things that utilizes a large variety of different IoT systems and combine them with contextualized information from various data sources.
  • Prove that this system can deliver securely and dependable dynamic, real-time, and remote IoT services with automatic adaptation to available resources and data lakes at any place in the world.
  • Help users to trust the GIoTS and effectively exploit it for international events like the Winter Olympics in Korea 2018
  • Strengthen the on-going international IoT standardisation based on outcomes from field pilots


Based on Morphing Mediation Gateways (MMG) concept, a trust-based recommendation system is proposed, leveraging upon Context Information APIs enabling end-to-end semantic interoperability and the dynamic distribution of analytic functions over a proposed ‘Global IoT Services’ (GIoTS). These GIoTS provide IoT virtualization and interaction with systems beyond IoT together with trust building and management capabilities. Six testbeds from Europe and South Korea will be federated to implement smart city, leisure and healthcare pilots demonstrating GIoTS based applications roaming capabilities across continents. An iterative development approach is being implemented to allow requirement and architecture adjustments as well as alignment and contributions back to ongoing standardisation activities through submissions in technical committees and interoperability events support. A strong plan for dissemination has been set-up and will have its peak during the trials to be run at Pyeongchang Olympic and Paralympic Games.
