OMB Control #0693-0033
Expiration Date 07/31/2022
On July 12 2019, the Technology Partnerships Office (TPO) at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) announced a study entitled Economic Research and Analysis of the National Need for Technology Infrastructure to support the Internet of Things (IoT).
In support of this study, we are interested in your perspectives and opinions on current and future opportunities for IoT technologies for the USA economy.
Your name and your organization's name will not be disclosed. We do not wish to discuss specific products or strategies but rather your thoughts about industry needs and how investments in technology infrastructure to meet those needs would improve services.
Our research products will be an economic analysis, final report and presentation materials. All deliverables will be publicly available in 2021 and these will be shared with you as soon as they are released.

The survey should take less than 10 minutes to complete. If you have questions, please contact Christopher Reberger at christopher@strategyofthings.io

If you wish to further participate, there is an interview request form at the end of the survey. 

Feel free to forward this URL to other colleagues with IoT knowledge.
