With over 80 participants representing 30 partners from academia, industry and the public sector, the new Swedish Digital Twin Cities Centre (DTCC) was launched in a virtual kick-off event on 26th of March.
The Digital Twin Cities Centre hosted by Chalmers is 1 of 21 competence centres funded by VINNOVA, Sweden’s innovation agency. The centre aims to establish Digital Twin Cities as the foundation for digital planning, design, construction and management of sustainable, intelligent and inclusive Swedish cities and regions. Sofia University participates with researchers from the GATE Institute. GATE will contribute expertise in 3D modeling, simulation and intelligent urban management.
Besides introducing all partners to the operations of the centre, the main purpose of the event was to start the discussions on concrete research activities. Through several online workshops and a survey, all partners will work together to establish a detailed plan in the next few weeks.
