OpenDoTT is a PhD programme  from Northumbria University and Mozilla to  explore how to build a more open, secure, and trustworthy Internet of Things.

The challenges of the Internet of Things (IoT) require interdisciplinary thinking. OpenDoTT will train five Early Stage Researchers with backgrounds in design, technology, arts and activism to create and advocate for connected products that are more open, secure, and trustworthy.

OpenDoTT at MozFest 2021: “Arrive with an idea, leave with a community”

Mozilla Festival 2021

OpenDoTT fellows and collaborators will bring their ideas and creativity to Mozilla’s annual festival, MozFest. At least 3,000 people are expected to attend the virtual festival with more than 500 sessions over two weeks from March 8-19, 2021. The schedule is organized and curated by volunteers, and anyone is welcome to register and even set their own ticket price.

“The OpenDoTT community was actually born as a result of MozFest,” says project leader Jon Rogers, explaining that it was where he first collaborated with Michelle Thorne. Together, Rogers and Thorne created the (former) Open IoT Studio and later initiated the OpenDoTT program, originally as a collaboration between the University of Dundee and Mozilla.
