Nominations are now open for techUK's Digital Twin Steering Board

The Digital Twin Group's Steering Board will lead in providing a strategic direction for the outputs of the group.

techUK’s Digital Twin Working Group (DTWG) – to date

techUK’s Digital Twin Working Group (DTWG) formed in Q1 2020. The DTWG has been established by techUK to critically analyse the regulatory, investment and policy frameworks that will enable the UK’s digital twin ecosystem to flourish. The DTWG set the strategic direction of techUK’s engagement work in this area and is supported by four voluntary delivery groups that currently focus on:

  1. Developing a reference architecture and integration guidance for digital twin deployment
  2. Developing taxonomy for different digital twin characteristics
  3. Cross-sector engagement
  4. Futures and horizons scanning

The DTWG has played an increasingly integral role in the UK’s digital twin ecosystem. For instance, in close partnership with the Centre for Digital Built Britain (CDBB) and the UK’s National Digital Programme (NDTP), the DTWG provided advice to senior decision-makers around the federation of digital twins in the UK, and the realisation of human-centered, sustainable, and resilient outcomes alongside the scaled adoption of digital twins.

The DTWG has been uniquely placed to advise organisations across Central Government on the strategic significance of digital twins, and it has strong working relationships with policy leads across Whitehall (particularly DCMS, BEIS and the UKRI).
