Digital Urban European Twins for smarter decision making

Project description

Building computer replicas of city systems

What does a perfect city look like? City planners are able to test their ideas using a 3D interface to create digital twins. These computer models can help city officials manage resources, enhance economic development, reduce ecological footprints and improve the quality of life for residents. The EU-funded DUET project is leveraging the advanced capabilities of cloud and high-performance computing to evolve the traditional public policymaking cycle using large open-data sources. The use of digital twins will make it easier for city managers to react quickly to real-time events and ensure long-term policy decisions are more effective and trusted. Tested in several cities across Europe, the project will create a policy-ready-data-as-a-service for all cities to use.
