The IoTalentum project, in which the BISITE Research Group of the University of Salamanca participates, successfully held its 8th Network Meeting (NM8) at the Wind Tre office in Mestre (Venice). This event, which took place on 15 and 16 May, brought together researchers and project partners with a view to share progress, discuss ideas and plan future collaborations.
