During the first year of the project, work will focus on an initial deployment of about 2,000-3,000 sensors in the city of Santander. These sensors will be used in an initial set of applications and services.

In subsequent years this initial deployment will be extended to exceed 20,000 sensors and innovative smart city applications and services. Several open calls for experimental contributions will be posted to the research community to use this unique facility in their research efforts.
- Validation of approaches to the architectural model of the IoT.
- Evaluation of the key building blocks of the IoT architecture, in particular, IoT interaction & management protocols and mechanisms; device technologies; and key support services such as discovery, identity management and security.
- Evaluation of social acceptance of IoT technologies and services.
