ETSI SmartM2M tackles IoT, inter­ope­ra­bi­li­ty, and Semantic Interoperability chal­lenges, contri­bu­ting to the digi­tal trans­for­ma­tion of indus­try sec­tors in Europe.

We lead the spe­cia­list task forces (STFs) aiming to define the col­la­bo­ra­tive deve­lop­ment work­flow of SAREF, the offi­cial SAREF onto­lo­gy por­tal , and the conti­nous inte­gra­tion and deploy­ment of SAREF using DevOps approaches tai­lo­red for onto­lo­gy engi­nee­ring. More spe­ci­fi­cal­ly, we were/​are invol­ved in the fol­lo­wing STFs :
