BioDT and DestinE

BioDT and the DestinE initiative have established a fruitful cooperation, driven by their shared focus on the Digital Twin realm. This collaboration ensures a powerful alliance in leveraging the potential of digital twins to tackle global environmental issues.

Building upon this synergy, the two initiatives co-organised the webinar titled "Digital Earth Twins to build resilience to climate change" in April 2023. This special event coincided in the month of the Earth Day, serving as a platform to highlight the ever-growing ecosystem of projects centred around digital twins. The webinar specifically addressed crucial issues like climate change and the preservation of biodiversity.
