In order to reap this potential, we need bright people and a conducive environment, avoiding fragmentation of the world of internet of things. This is why India and the European Union are joining forces to promote international standards such as OneM2M. The hackathon gives young innovators the opportunity to materialise their concept within this global standard for interoperability.”
