UKRI has recently announced the launch of the National Centre of Excellence for IoT Systems Cybersecurity. Following on from the highly successful PETRAS Internet of Things Research Hub, the PETRAS National Centre of Excellence for IoT Systems Cybersecurity recognises that rapidly developing digital technologies, together with social and business trends, are providing huge opportunities for innovation in product and service markets, and government processes. But with these opportunities come challenges that include the development of technologies on the outskirts of the internet, such as artificial intelligence (AI) in the cloud and in Edge computing, IoT devices and networks and distributed ledger technology.

PETRAS will manage a series of open academic funding calls throughout its lifetime, the first of which will be announced in summer 2019.
