OPPORTUNITY: Department of Commerce Seeks Internet of Things Experts for New Advisory Board

US Department of Commerce reports on an opportunity for anyone interested in  Internet of Things (IoT). It would be great to see some Minnesota names on the list…

The U.S. Department of Commerce seeks qualified nominations for a new Internet of Things Advisory Board to advise the recently established Internet of Things Federal Working Group. The advisory board will include a wide range of stakeholders outside of the federal government with expertise relating to the Internet of Things (IoT). …

Among other topics, the board will advise the federal working group on matters including the identification of any federal regulations, programs or policies that may inhibit or promote the development of IoT; situations in which IoT could deliver significant and scalable economic and societal benefits to the United States; IoT opportunities and challenges for small businesses; and any IoT-related international opportunities for the U.S. Full details on the board’s activities are provided in the Federal Register notice.

The board will consist of 16 members representing a wide range of stakeholders outside of the federal government with expertise relating to the Internet of Things. Board members will serve two-year terms.

Nominations should be made according to guidance provided in the Federal Register notice and are due by Feb. 28, 2022. The National Institute of Standards and Technology will provide administrative support to the advisory board, and information on board activities can be found on the NIST website.
