CITC – Open day
To celebrate the IoT Day 2014, the Innovation Centre of Contactless Technologies (CITC EuraRFID), is pleased to invite you to visit its office, fab lab, and demonstrators in Lille (Northern France) !
The CITC-EuraRFID brings together the contactless technology skills and the existing experimentation platforms in the Euro regions (Belgium, UK, Netherlands, Germany…) and is backed by over 250 members and partners. It is a centre for resources, experimentations and technical expertise in terms of identification, traceability, mobility and geolocation, which aims to develop an ecosytem specialized in the Internet of Things.
It supports the appropriation of standardized and innovative solutions regarding contactless technologies (RFID, NFC, Zigbee, etc.) and wireless microsensor networks, that have been identified among the most important technologies for the 21st century, along with the development of new activities with high potential (Smart Grid, Smart Cities, Smart Health, etc.).
In order to successfully leverage these innovation technologies and support the innovation within local economy, the CITC works on social acceptance (accessibility, consumer convenience, privacy…), networked RFID and future Internet of Things, health and environmental impact, and harmonization issues (interoperability between different systems harmonization of regional standards…).
Created in January 2009, CITC is supported by the Nord-Pas de Calais Regional Council, the French Government, the Greater Lille Metropolitan Urban Community (LMCU), and the European Union (FEDER).
