Liaison Working Group

Liaison Working Group

The Liaison Working Group is the gateway for formal liaisons with other organizations such as standards organizations, open-source organizations, other consortia and alliances (either technology-focused or industry-focused), certification and testing bodies and government entities or agencies.

The purpose of these relationships is to generate requirements for new standards from every part of the activities taking place within the Industrial Internet Consortium – from use cases to Reference Architecture to testbeds, by maintaining continuing communication channels, identifying domain expertise in user and industry groups that can provide use cases that help ensure our testbeds serve their domain.
