The Original HAT project was from 1 June 2013 - December 2016
The HAT project was a £1.2m multi-disciplinary project funded by the Research Councils UK (RCUK) Digital Economy Programme. It involved 7 academic investigators with a team of researchers from the domain of Economics, Business, Computing and the Arts across 6 UK universities of Warwick, Surrey, Nottingham, Cambridge, West England and Edinburgh.
The project’s original objective was to create the HAT (Hub-of-All-Things), a Multi-Sided Market Platform (MSMP) for connected services and products through a home information hub powered by the Internet-of-Things (IOT). It subsequently re-positioned it research to focus on the market place for data powered by IOT.
