As part of the supportive efforts for collaboration among companies, the IoT Acceleration Lab held five IoT Lab Connection events so far, featuring theme-based project organization and business collaboration among companies, such as tourism, manufacturing, and health care/medical care.

At the Sixth IoT Lab Connection, the solution matching event will focus on two themes:[ⅰ]risk management and[ⅱ]entertainment, and will provide a business matching event targeting IoT Acceleration Lab member companies or corporate groups, associations and municipal governments that have business models, technologies and services related to the themes.
