Call to Universities: The IoT Spartans Challenge starts in less than a monthMay 22, 2017


Libelium sustains its education commitment launching the second edition of the IoT Spartans Challenge. The development of the IoT market is linked to the workforce that will be needed to program the 50 billion of IoT devices that are predicted to be connected to the Internet by 2020. This educational program focuses on covering the gap between the skills demanded by IoT companies and the practical knowledge of the engeneering students.

The first three international Universities that have joined the Challenge are Aahrus University (from Denmark), IPCA (from Portugal) and UTP (from Panama), the winner of the past Spartans edition.
