digital twin


The DIGITAL TWIN program is organized into five main project (Projects 1-5) and is supported by a project on governance. Each of the main projects will be attached to specific use-cases and collaborate with Project 6, in the design and development of a generic demonstrator that is dedicated for public dissemination.

Research Project 1

Taming the High Complexity of Digital Twins

In this project, we will tackle the following scientific challenges. How can we handle the high complexity in the development of multi-disciplinary digital twins? And how do we manage heterogeneous multi-disciplinary models and guarantee the consistency between these models?
