In the context of the fourth industrial revolution (Industry 4.0), the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is integral to how cyber-physical systems and production processes are set to transform. The transnational educational and cultural collaboration between the University of Siegen (USI) as the project coordinator and the University of Guilan (UG) as the funded partner in Iran focuses on the Industrial and Intelligent Internet of Things (3IoT) that forms the title of the project. IIoT is the use of intelligent sensors and actuators to enhance manufacturing and industrial processes and can provide the infrastructure for smart cities, smart manufacturing, etc. as well as the solution to several societal challenges. The Industrial Internet of Things has a significant impact on manufacturing, quality control, and supply chain management and is employed in many industries, including transportation, mining, oil and gas, food industry, ports, etc. The main purpose of this collaboration is to establish scientific and cultural communication and networking between the universities and non-university actors centering on the education of students with scientific and industrial skills required in local industries, as well as exchange students and young academics. The involved community in the 3IoT will strengthen the research and innovation in the field of IIoT for the mutual benefit of all parties.
