Digital twins are already enabling the UK to deliver on Net Zero 2050 objectives, supporting the reduction of social inequalities, and driving R&D-led growth.
Looking to the future accelerating the development, adoption, and diffusion of connected digital twins is fast becoming a national-level imperative.
However, the term ‘digital twin’ itself is often seen as a buzzword that frequently creates confusion, and there is a lack of consensus around how digital twins can be leveraged to best effect.
With this in mind, techUK’s Digital Twins Working Group (DTWG) has produced a landmark report- ‘Unlocking Value Across the UK’s Digital Twin Ecosystem’- which is scheduled to be released on Thursday 25th February from 09:00 – 11:00.
The purpose of this report is to drive consensus around terminology, highlight key prizes associated with digital twinning across the UK, and to set out strategic recommendations for industry and Government as to how the UK’s digital twin ecosystem can progress and evolve long-term.
On the same day the Centre for Digital Built Britain (CDBB) National Digital Twin programme (NDTp) will be launching the Digital Twin toolkit report. This toolkit is aimed at helping organisations to develop the business case for digital twins. The toolkit has been produced through a collaboration with techUK and NDTp Gemini supporters.
On the day, we will be bringing together key stakeholders and thought leaders from across the ecosystem, and providing short introductions to both reports and opening up for questions from the floor.
