Autumn 2022


Digital Twins to Future-Proof Europe's Buildings and Neighbourhoods

September 15th, 2022, from 16:00 to 17:30 (EEST)

Data is a keystone for better decision making at city-level, helping to inform policy making and underpinning the monitoring and fine-tuning of measures for improved climate mitigation and adaptation. Data alone is not enough, however: only when building-, neighbourhood- and city-level information is processed, made accessible and is sufficiently understandable can stakeholders harness it properly.

The EURESFO session, which is being co-organised via the EU-funded RUGGEDISED project, focusses on the power of digital twins in helping cities future-proof their built environment and wider urban systems. The session features a panel discussion between representatives from the leading cities and from the private sector that are working with building- and city-scale modelling applications.

Panellists and the audience will be invited to reflect on current as well as future digital twin applications in European cities, exploring crosssectoral dimensions to enhanced resilience, citizen engagement potential and enabling factors for the scaling up of building, neighbourhood and city-wide models.

RUGGEDISED is a smart city project funded under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme. It brings together three lighthouse cities: Rotterdam, Glasgow and Umeå and three fellow cities: Brno, Gdansk and Parma to test, implement and accelerate the smart city model across Europe.
