BioDT is a Horizon Europe project which kicked off in June 2022, where top European and global research infrastructures came together to design and develop a digital twin prototype for the study and analysis of biodiversity, in support of the EU Biodiversity Strategy for 2030.
The Biodiversity Digital Twin prototype will provide advanced models for simulation and prediction capabilities, through practical use cases addressing critical issues related to global biodiversity dynamics.
This is the first issue of our newsletter, which will follow this exciting journey with quarterly updates. Make sure you join our next webinar!
WEBINAR - BioDT use cases: unique demonstrators to test the biodiversity Digital Twin prototype
Our upcoming webinar presents the scope, challenges, solutions and benefits brought by the BioDT use cases.
Join us on 27 September and learn more about how these four groups can help scientists in predicting future trends in the biodiversity field, with experts from top Research Infrastructures.
Group 1 - Species response to environmental change
Group 2 - Genetically detected biodiversity
Group 3 - Dynamics and threats from and for species of policy concern
Group 4 - Species interactions with each other and with humans
WEBINAR highlights - BioDT: a new solution to support protection and restoration of ecosystems
Our first webinar took place on 13 July 2022, with the aim of showing the main project objectives and goals, as well as its interaction with the LUMI Supercomputer, fundamental for building its modelling and simulation capabilities.
We also welcomed experts from across the biodiversity, HPC and Open Science communities to discuss key issues related to the development of a digital twin for biodiversity.
BioDT: a Digital Twin prototype to help protect and restore biodiversity
Top European and global research infrastructures came together to design and develop BioDT, a digital twin prototype for the study and analysis of biodiversity, in support of the EU Biodiversity Strategy for 2030.
“CSC is pleased to support this flagship project, with BioDT being one of the first European-wide research initiatives to benefit from access to the LUMI supercomputer, BioDT will directly improve our ability to address global challenges associated with biodiversity loss and the climate crisis, including the provision of ecosystem services and food security, predicting disease outbreaks, and understanding the dynamics of key species of policy concern.”
