The University of Salamanca will host an Internet of Things (IoT) and Blockchain workshop on Thursday 15 February, starting at 3 p.m. It will take place in the R+D+I Building and is aimed at students and members of traditional SMEs who wish to incorporate these technologies into their production processes. This workshop is part of the Interreg PocTep IOTEC Project "Building Technological Capacities in Industrial Applications of the Internet of Things", financed by the European Regional Development Fund (FEDER) under the Interreg V-A Spain-Portugal 2014-2020 (PocTep) program.

The aim of the project is to provide education in IoT technologies by leading entities which use of these techniques. The aim is to promote production and control processes in industrial solutions for SMEs through the application of IoT technologies.

The event will start with a digital manufacturing workshop led by FABLAB Salamanca. In this workshop, participants will be able to learn about 3D design, additive and subtractive manufacturing, 3D printing and laser machining, showing the changes that these tools can produce in the prototyping cycle of a product. This workshop will allow participants to acquire new skills in a simple and affordable way.

There will also be a talk-debate about Blockchain technology, as well as its impact on industries and how we can incorporate it into the business world to get the most out of it. Managers of ViewNext and Everis will present their views on this technology and participate in a round table discussion led by the project coordinator, Juan Manuel Corchado.

Finally, there will be an expository talk on how IoT solutions should be incorporated in traditional manufacturing companies, exemplified in the creation of intelligent fabrics. This talk will be delivered by the SME Educatibot.
