The Industrial Internet Consortium Steering Committee has 11 members (plus the Executive Director, ex-officio), each of whom is affiliated with an Industrial Internet Consortium member company. Five seats are held by Contributing Members and consist of four-year terms; these seats are currently held by Bosch, Dell EMC, Huawei, Microsoft and Purdue.
The remaining Steering Committee seats are for two-year term and consist of two representatives from large industry members, one representative from small industry, and one representative from academia, nonprofit and government members. In the 2017-2018 election and beyond, seats up for election will be for two-year terms. Seats are filled by a vote of the members within each level, with the exception of the Contributing Member which is a four-year term voted on by the Founding and Contributing Members.
The role of the Steering Committee includes, but is not limited to, fiscal oversight, setting up subgroups as appropriate, including but not limited to research selection, testbed creation and defining standards requirements and priorities. The Steering Committee functions like a Board.
