CSU-CWRU Internet of Things Collaborative

IoT Collaborative

About the Collaborative

The Internet of Things (IoT) Collaborative initiated by CSU and Case Western Reserve University (CWRU) has moved from the planning phase to a full launch with funding from the Cleveland Foundation. The IoT Collaborative will lead the development and advancement of IoT as an engaged and socially responsible partner with the communities, industries, and government entities of Greater Cleveland. The Cleveland Foundation is providing the Collaborative with $1.75 million in funding for 2018, and the collaborative intends to seek additional funding from the foundation in future years. The CSU PI of the IoT Collaborative grant is Dr. Jerzy Sawicki, Vice President for Research.

CSU and CWRU will collaborate on research programs, research assets, cross-registered courses, and community stakeholder engagement. CSU will leverage its strengths in technology development, social and applied sciences, cybersecurity, and business to lead a wide range of research activities. Strategic investments like the FRD-IoT Program are already building IoT-specific research capacity on campus.
